RECALL: Liquid-filled teethers


I know a bunch of you have little ones, grand kids, etc. So I thought I’d post the heads up. Hopefully no one has these, but just in case… They show the other ones on the website, but I’m just posting one. It would be nice if I included the site, huh? LOL The First Years

Liquid-Filled Teether Recall

The First Years is dedicated to providing parents with safe, high-quality products. In line with this mission, we have issued a voluntary recall of six liquid-filled teethers sold between July 2005 and January 2006 due to possible bacterial contamination. The liquid inside the teethers may contain pseudomonas aeruginosa and pseudomonas putida which can cause serious illness in children if the teether is punctured and the liquid from the teether is ingested.

Consumers should stop using the teethers immediately.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

Consumers should place the recalled teether in its current condition in a sealed plastic bag and send to:

In the United States: Parent Service Center, RC2/The First Years, 100 Technology Center Drive, Stoughton, Massachusetts, 02072.

In Canada: KRG Logistics Inc.,170 Traders Blvd., East Mississauga, ONT L4Z 1W7.

Consumers should include their mailing address in the envelope to receive a replacement teether and free gift. For additional information, consumers can contact The First Years Parent Service Center at 1-866-725-4407, or by email at
