The federal Consumer Product Safety Commission just recalled 45,000 of these cheap Karino Baby Pacifiers, sold for 25 cents each, because they violate pretty much every safety standard for pacifiers. The nipple separates from the base, the handle is too long, the mouth guard too small and there are no air holes on the mouth guard. The only thing one can say in favor of these things is that they don’t seem to have been dipped in lead paint or cadmium. If you think you have one, look for the word “Kariño” on the handle side of the mouth guard, and “Mygra” on the handle. And here’s another bizarre thing. The nipple, says the CPSC, is filled with corn syrup. Um, is that normal?
