In a story Jan. 22 about a recall of Playtex pacifier holders, The Associated Press reported erroneously, using information supplied by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, that the product was sold at Target. The products were not sold at Target.
This version also corrects style on Wal-Mart.

Playtex recalls 1.4M pacifier holders
Playtex recalling 1.4 million pacifier holders, says a child could choke if a part breaks off
By The Associated Press
Playtex is recalling 1.4 million pacifier holders because of concern that a small child could choke if a part of the clip broke off.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday that the clips — used to connect a pacifier to clothing, diaper bags or strollers — can crack and a small part can break off. Playtex has received 99 reports of the holder cracking or breaking. No injuries have been reported.
Playtex is recalling 1.25 million clips in the U.S. and 150,000 in Canada. They were sold from 2010 through October 2013 for about $3 at major retailers including Wal-Mart and online at Amazon.com.
Consumers should stop using the pacifier holder and contact Playtex Products Inc. for a refund at (888) 220-2075 or online at www.playtexproducts.com.
