A recall has been issued on Dr. Brown’s Lovey pacifier & teether holders. These are plush stuffed toy animals (deer, giraffe, frog, bunny, turtle, and more) that have a ribbon and snap to attach a pacifier or teether to. The problem is that the snap can detach from the ribbon and be a choking hazard to baby. These Lovey animals were sold at stores that include: Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Toys ‘R Us/Babies ‘R Us, Wal-Mart and Amazon.com from August 2015 to March 2018 for about $10.
If you have one of these animals, the manufacturer requests you remove it from baby immediately and contact the company for a refund or replacement. Call Handi-Craft at 1-833-224-7674 or go online to drbrownsbaby.com and click on “Recall Information” (it’s way down at the very bottom of the website’s homepage).
