Pacifier accessories that carry risks for babies

It seems incredible that after so many security checks that baby items go through before they go on the market, that there are still some that have to be withdrawn from stores for not complying with safety regulations and constitute a risk to the babies. Now, it is the accessories for pacifiers that are declared dangerous for the little ones.

FACUA-Consumidores en Acción informs that the Consumer authorities have ordered, so far this year, the withdrawal from the market of 19 models of pacifier chains, as they involve risk of suffocation, entrapment and various injuries, since they were not manufactured in compliance with the European regulations that regulate them. The Ministry of Health and Social Policy reveals that items can break or detach from their silver coating, generating small parts that babies can swallow, and sharp edges that can injure them. There are also chains that contain very wide holes where the fingers of little ones can get caught, apart from the fact that there are products whose ventilation holes are not suitable.

FACUA asks consumers who have purchased these products to return them to the establishments and demand the return of the money, and to notify the association by email: [email protected] Among the items declared dangerous, are well-known brands such as Disney and Hello Kitty.
