WASHINGTON, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a warning to parents and others to stop using "My Baby Soother," a pacifier considered a choking hazard.

The commission said the distributor of the pacifiers, T & L Trading Corp. of Brooklyn, N.Y., had refused to recall the products.

The nipples on the pacifiers can detach, creating a choking hazard, the commission said. The pacifiers are red, blue, pink, white and yellow. They are heart-shaped with the words "My Baby Soother" printed on the top.

About 16,500 pacifiers have been sold for about $1 each from August 2007 to July 2009, mostly in the New York City area, the commission said in a statement Monday.

Retailers were advised to stop selling the pacifiers. Consumers were advised to take the pacifiers from infants and toddlers.
