A pacifier clip manufacturer is issuing a recall due to a choking hazard.

Chewbeads is recalling certain styles of clip holders after reports that the "D" ring on the pacifier clip can break, allowing beads to detach, posing a choking hazard. The firm has received seven reports of the beads detaching. No injuries have been reported.

The recall involves five styles of pacifier clip holders. The "Where's the Pacifier?" pacifier clips styles include shapes of a butterfly, dinosaur, heart, sheriff badge and a white baseball with red stitching and a major league baseball team logo. Chewbeads baby is imprinted in raised letters on the rubber shape attachment. The pacifier clips have eight multi-colored beads threaded through a narrow satin ribbon that attaches to a pacifier on one end and a plastic D-ring on the other. The following number codes appear on the back of the plastic clip: 3/31/14, 08/08/14, 12/01/14, 14/30/09, 15/02/09, and 25/04/14.

Consumers could purchase these products at Buy Buy Baby and small boutique retail stores nationwide and in Canada from September 2014 through June 2015 for $16.50 for the baseball themed clips and $15 for the other style clips.

About 45,000 clip holders are subject to the recall. Consumers should immediately take these away from young children and contact Chewbeads for a free replacement pacifier clip or a refund of the purchase price.

Customers with questions about the recall can contact the company at (888) 786-7790 or by email at service@chewbeads.com.
