Callison, Inc., has issued a voluntary recall of 7,000 teething rings. The teething rings were sold on Amazon.com and at small specialty children's stores between January 2008 and November 2010. The retail price was approximately $10. The recall notice
gives the following detailed description of the teething rings: "The Cool-it Soother teething ring is clear and is attached to a green plastic handle in the shape of the character 'Gnon.'"
Reason for recall
Callison Inc. voluntarily issued the recall in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) because bacteria and mold can grow inside the teething ring (in the liquid) if the ring is punctured. If this happens, it creates an "ingestion hazard" for infants. If a baby were to ingest the liquid (after mold and/or bacteria grew), it could cause diarrhea and vomiting. The CPSC received no reports of injuries or incidents.
What should you do?
The CPSC advises consumers to immediately take the teething rings away from their babies. You can call Callison for a free replacement.
