Recall Wednesday - Taggies, circular saw, flashing pacifier, roman shades and roll up blinds, stool and cribs.


Below are the CPSC recalls I received this past week. This is actually the 1st time that I have found one of the recall items in my home! We were at a parade a few weeks ago and we purchased, much to my hesitation, a blinking pacifier for my little munchkin. I remember laughing to my Smarty Pants Dada that night that this "toy" has all signs of needing to be recalled! Luckily my daughter only played with it for the hour of the parade and then I quickly confiscated it. It was very much an "I told you so" moment yesterday when I received the email from the CPSC that the pacifier had been recalled. What good motherly instincts I had!!

Please see the CPSC website for further, more detailed information on all recalled products mentioned below.
