Playtex is recalling more than 1 million pacifier holder clips because it can pose a choking hazard to small children.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the pacifier holder can crack and pieces could create a choking hazard for small children. Playtex has received 99 reports of the holder cracking or breaking. No injuries have been reported.

“This recall involves the Playtex pacifier holder clips that attach a pacifier to items like clothing, diaper bags and strollers. It is a plastic clip with a figure and a ‘Playtex’ copyright logo that slides up and down to adjust the clip, a ribbon and a clear plastic ring that stretches to fit the pacifier. The pacifier holder was sold in green with a monkey figure, pink with a flower and blue with a tow truck,” reported the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The product was sold at Walmart, Target, Burlington Coat Factory, other major retailers, juvenile product, baby and discount stores across the country and onlinen at Amazon.com and other sites from July 2010 to October 2013 for about $3.

Consumers should stop using the product and contact Playtex. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled product.
