CITY OF COMMERCE, Calif., Sept. 24 (UPI) -- Natura Products Downey of City of Commerce, Calif., Friday recalled 9,400 Jaloma pacifiers because they may pose a choking hazard to infants.

Natura Products said consumers should stop using the recalled products immediately.

The pacifiers are banned under federal law because they failed federal safety tests, come apart and can pose a choking hazard.

There has been one report of a pacifier nipple that detached from the pacifier while in the mouth of a 7-month-old. The child was not injured.

The pacifiers, which measure 3 inches long and about 1.5 inches across the base, are pink, blue, green or white plastic with a yellow nipple. The pacifiers have a circular handle and the shield is labeled "Jaloma." The nipples are filled with a sugary substance, manufactured in Mexico and sold at various small Mexican supermarkets and commercial retailers nationwide from March 2004 through August 2004 for between 35 cents and $1.

Consumers should immediately take the pacifiers away from young children and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund or call Natura Products Downey collect at (323) 726-9098.
