MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Playtex is recalling more than 1.25 million pacifier holder clips because the clips can crack and break -- which poses a choking hazard to small children.

The Playtex pacifier holder clips attach a pacifier to items like clothing, diaper bags and strollers. It is a plastic clip with a figure and a “Playtex” copyright logo that slides up and down to adjust the clip, a ribbon and a clear plastic ring that stretches to fit the pacifier.

Playtex has received 99 reports of the holder cracking or breaking. No injuries have been reported.

The pacifier holder clips were sold at Walmart, Target, Burlington Coat Factory, other major retailers, juvenile product, baby and discount stores nationwide and online at, among others, from July 2010 through October 2013 for about $3.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled pacifier holders away from infants and contact Playtex for instructions on how to return the product for a full refund.

Consumers can contact Playtex oll-free at (888) 220-2075 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online and click on Recall for more information.
