A silicone baby teether has been recalled nationwide over choking and suffocation fears.
The Australian Competition and Consumer commission warned parents about the Veronica Shnoudi — Icecream Silicone Baby Teether recall in a notice on their website this week.
“The silicone icecream teethers are smaller than the permitted dimensions and do not comply with the mandatory toy safety standard for children up to and including 36 months of age,” the recall notice reads.

People have been urged to stop using the product and return it to the place of purchase for a refund or replacement with a different product.
