Nuby Australia have issued an urgent recall for the NUBY silicone ortho pacifier.

A statement from the company warns parents that due to the shield size the dummy can become lodged in a child’s throat and possibly block the airways.

“At Nuby Australia, the safety of our customers and their families is our highest priority.

“This is why we’ve decided to conduct a voluntary recall of the Nuby Silicone Ortho Pacifier 2 Pack 0-12m, due to a safety issue.

“This item was available for purchase between September 2018 and May 2019 inclusive. We recommend you stop using the item immediately and contact us as soon as possible.”

PROBLEM: The pacifier can become lodged in a child’s throat and potentially cause a blockage in the air passage.

DEFECT: The pacifier does not comply with Australian standards. Of particular concern is the size of the shield which has capacity to block the airways of a young child.

  • Oh dear. One of the brands I used with my son. My two daughters never took to the dummy, which made it trickier to soothe them, but good that I didn’t have to worry about weaning them.


  • I wonder how many complaints were made before they ‘voluntarily ‘ issued a recall?


  • Thankfully my dummy days are over


  • Nuk is a very popular brand. Thanks for the info.


  • Dummy recalls always seem particularly scary.


  • Thanks for recall,good to pass it on to new Mums!


  • All these recalls……anyone else thinking they’re getting to be beyond a joke? Especially when baby products aren’t safe


  • Scary, I’m always to anxious about dummies to use them, (I’m not against them though). I freak out that something might fall apart and choke my babies
