Affected products

This recall involves Nûby 3-Pack Ring Chill kool Soother Teether. The recalled teethers are available in different colours: purple/aqua/pink or green/orange/blue. The model# 537169, UPC 6 27972 53716 9 and embossed lot number M2K18V are located on the back of the packaging. The lot number can be found on the chamber of the teether.

Issue

Under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act, teether fillings must not contain any living micro-organisms. Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program found some samples that were contaminated with the bacteria Bacillus cereus. These bacteria generally do not cause illness in healthy individuals. However, the bacteria can affect children with weakened immune systems, causing stomach pain, vomiting and diarrhea, if the teether is punctured and the liquid filling is ingested.

As of November 23, 2022 the company has received no reports of incident or injury in Canada.

Please note that the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.
