Children's Pacifier and Play Yard Recalled

Due to choking hazards HealthTex of Miami, Florida has recalled about 40,000 Healthtex Zoo Pacifiers. The CPSC explained that the Healthtex Zoo Pacifiers failed to meet federal safety standards. The nipples can separate from the base easily, posing a choking hazard to young children. The recall involves Zoo pacifiers with animal cartoon figures as handles. The recalled Healthtex Zoo Pacifiers were made in Spain and sold at supermarkets and pharmacy stores nationwide from December 2002 through March 2009 for about $1.40.

Also about 25,000 Simplicity Travel Tender Play Yards have been recalled by importer Simplicity, Inc. and SFCA, Inc. of Reading, Pennsylvania. The recall was implemented because one or more rails on the Simplicity Travel Tender Play Yards can collapse unexpectedly, posing a fall or entrapment hazard to young children. The CPSC is aware of at least five reports of one or more rails collapsing. The recalled Simplicity Travel Tender Play Yards were made in China and sold at Burlington Coat Factory stores nationwide and online at Babiesrus.com, Target.com, and Kohls.com from March 2005 through January 2009 for about $100.
