Binky Squeaky Pacifier

Description: Binky-Griptight Pacifiers Warning NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE October 11, 1984 Release # 84-059 Pacifier May Present Choking Hazard WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Binky-Griptight, Inc. of Wallington, New Jersey, is urging consumers to stop using and to discard the Binky Squeaky Pacifier, Model 593, because it may present a choking and suffocation hazard if the one piece nipple/handle separates from the plastic shield. Separation of the nipple/handle from the shield occurred during CPSC structural integrity testing which involves boiling the pacifier and then subjecting the handle to pull forces. The recalled pacifier has a rigid plastic shield with three vent holes and the words "MADE IN JAPAN" embossed on the shield. The shields are pink and blue. The nipple and handle are made of a single piece of rubber. The handle, which is bulbous or round, has a silver-colored metal squeaker on the end. The pacifiers were sold between January and June 1984. Although there have been no incidents involving these particular pacifiers, CPSC and Binky-Griptiqht, Inc. have determined that because of the potential for injury, this warning is in the public interest. Retailers should discontinue sale of the Binky Squeaky Pacifier, model 593 and contact Binky-Griptight, Inc. The product will be replaced by a new model 593 (marked "new" above the number) and identified by a white plastic squeaker instead of the metal one. For further information, consumers may call Binky-Griptight, Inc., at 201-935-4580 for New Jersey residents or 800-526-6320 for residents of other states or CPSC's toll free Hotline at 800-638-CPSC. A teletypewriter number for the hearing-impaired is (301) 595-7054. [Learn More]
