Consumer Product Safety Commission（CPSC) website shows that Mushie&Co is recalling its FRIGG silicone pacifier recently.
FRIGG silicone nipple is mainly composed of two parts: plastic cover and nipple. The problem with this batch of pacifiers lies in the connection between the cover and the nipple head.There is a slit at the bottom of the teat head, which may cause the teat head to fall off from the shield, causing asphyxia.
Mushie&Co has sold these pacifiers in retail channels such as Amazon. From April to December 2021, Mushie&Co sold 333725 such pacifiers.
So far,Mushie&Co has received 8 reports of pacifiers falling off the cover. In addition, pacifier manufacturer FRIGG Production ApS/FB Trading ApS also received about 200 reports of pacifier shedding from outside the United States.
Query on Amazon America,FRIGG silicone pacifier has been taken off the shelf, but FRIGG natural rubber pacifier is still on sale. On the product page of its natural rubber pacifier, many consumers also raised questions: wasn't this product recalled?
In this regard, Xiao Bian believes that although the recall of the product may not really affect the sales of other products, it will definitely affect its brand reputation.
All along, pacifiers have been recalled as a flood disaster area. In addition to the falling off of external parts, the reason for recall is that the neck of the baby is strangled due to the long pacifier tether, the baby suffers from headache and other physical discomfort due to the unqualified pacifier material, and the baby swallows due to the fragile pacifier.
