This recall involves Infantino 3-Pack Water teethers (2 green and 1 blue teether) sold in Canada at Winners Merchants International L.P (TJX Canada) stores.
The recalled teethers can be identified by item number 216-526/516-526, UPC 773554165265 and date code 2217 1021. The date code can be found directly on the product in the date code wheel and on the back of the packaging. Only the teethers with a 2217 1021 date code, as indicated above, are affected by this recall.
Under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act, teether fillings must not contain any living micro-organisms. Health Canada’s sampling and evaluation program has determined that the liquid filling is contaminated with the bacteria Sphingomonas sp. The bacteria is usually harmless, but may cause an infection in children if the toy is punctured and the liquid filling is ingested.
As of October 11, 2022, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.
