RECALL: Popular silicone dummies recalled over choking fears

Parents are being warned of a nationwide recall involving a popular range of silicone baby dummies.

A number of FRIGG classic silicone and Frigg Daisy silicone pacifiers have been pulled from sale over fears the teat may partly detach from the shield.

“A broken teat may pose a choking hazard for young children, which can lead to severe injury or death,” the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission said.

The pacifiers have been available for sale at various baby and children’s stores across the country, including online, from 1 April to 10 December.

Frigg has taken to social media to confirm the recall, apologising for the inconvenience caused.

“Naturally we are more than sorry as we know this might cause a great deal of frustration and inconvenience for you,” Frigg said.

“We at FRIGG Production ApS has a very strong focus on product safety and quality and therefore we have stopped production of the FRIGG SILICONE Pacifiers.

“We are currently reengineering the design before releasing these pacifiers again.”

People are being told to stop using the dummies immediately and to contact the place of purchase to receive a refund or replacement.

“Consumers will be asked to provide a photograph to show that the product has been disposed of or destroyed,” the ACCC said.

“If the product has already been disposed of or destroyed, consumers are asked to notify the place of purchase so that the safe disposal of the products can be monitored”.
