    The moustache could possibly come off and create a choking hazard for babies.

    The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is recalling three baby pacifiers due to a choking hazard.

    The pacifiers are manufactured by Fred & Friends and have elements that can detach and create a problem. The CPSC also said the ventilation holes to two of the pacifier guards are too small.

    The pacifiers recalled are the Artiste, Volume, and Panic pacifiers. The Artiste has a fake mustache on it while the Volume and Panic pacifiers have knobs on the front.

    There has been one report of a knob detaching. No injuries have been reported.

    Consumers should immediately take the recalled pacifiers away from young children and return them to Fred & Friends for a $12 refund. Fred & Friends is providing a postage paid envelope for consumers to return the recalled pacifiers.

    People can call Fred & Friends toll-free at (855) 346-6372 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, email the firm at pacifiersconsumer@fredandfriends.com or online at www.fredandfriends.com and click on Pacifier Recall for more information.
