Fred & Friends is recalling 200,000 pacifiers because of a risk that a baby using one could choke.
No injuries have been reported.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says three different pacifiers are involved. The Chill Baby Artiste Pacifier has an attached mustache and beard, which can break off. The Chill Baby Volume Control Pacifier has a volume knob that can detach and the ventilation holes are smaller than federal regulators require. The Chill Baby Panic Button Pacifier also has vent holes that are too small.
Fred & Friends has received one report of the knob on the volume pacifier coming off.
Consumers should stop using the pacifiers and return them for a $12 refund.
