Emergency recall of the ‘mushroom biter toy’

The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission has issued an emergency recall of a baby teether due to high risk of suffocation.

Online retailer Amazon is recalling the “Mushroom Teether Toys for Newborn Babies, Toddlers, Infants, Embossed Sore Gum – BPA-Free Chew Toy”, sold on its platform from September 24, 2021.

A safety issue has been identified where the pacifier mushroom head can flip over creating a very tight suction causing a choking hazard.

There are around 40 affected products in the Republic of Ireland.

The pacifier poses a choking hazard.

The JPAC said parents should immediately stop using the pacifiers and contact Amazon or another place of purchase for a refund.

Alerted to JPAC through the EU-wide RAPEX product safety information exchange system, this recall represents the first emergency measure notice of 2022, a safety advisory status reserved for extremely high-risk products, including those that pose a serious risk of death.
