Pampers® Natural Stages Infant Ortho and Bulb Pacifiers have been recalled because the back part of the pacifiers may not be wide enough to prevent infants from choking on the pacifier. These are yellow, pink, and blue pacifiers sold from September 2010 to March 2011. Approximately 14,000 of the recalled pacifiers were sold during that time period. Consumers that purchased the recalled pacifiers should immediately discontinue their use, and contact Key Baby, Inc., the distributor of Pampers® Natural Stages Infant Ortho and Bulb Pacifiers, at 800-447-1224 for a refund or replacement. An online return form can be found at www.key-baby.com.
