Child comforters with hard plastic shields and soft latex cherries. Sold from late May 2016, in packs of three. Affected product is marked with SKU 270145, and one of the following batch codes: 09116JC, 08516JC, or 12316JC.
The shield of the comforter measures 50 millimetres across. The previous version of the same product line, still available at some retailers, is not recalled (its shield is more rectangular shaped and measures 56 millimetres across).
In the event that a child takes the whole comforter into their mouth, the shield and teat size combination may allow the comforter to get positioned in the back of the mouth.
If the comforter is taken into the back of the mouth in a certain position, it may pose a risk of choking.
Consumers should immediately stop using the comforter and follow the instructions at www.tommeetippee.com.au/comforter-recall/ (link is external) to obtain a refund or replacement. A comforter for this age group with a larger shield size will replace the recalled comforter. Customers without access to the internet should call 1800 096 938.
