As a new mom, the thought had crossed my mind regarding the safety these liquid-filled teethers. So I wasn't totally surprised to see this recall.

Health Canada has issued recalls on 3 models of teethers under the brands Nuby and Playgro. Note that this affect 5 different styles, see the photos for clarity.

In Canada, approximately 125,071 of the Nuby gel filled teethers and 7,365 of the Noah’s Ark by Playgro Toothy Teethers were sold by major retailers and independent retailers from May 2008 through May 2009. The recalled products include:

  • Playgro Noah's Ark Toothy Teether
  • Nuby Fun Pal Teether (3 styles)
  • Nuby Icy Bite Keys Teether


The hazard identified by Health Canada:
"Health Canada requires that infant teether fillings must not contain any living micro-organisms. Testing by Health Canada of these 3 teether products has revealed that the liquid filling of the teether is contaminated with the bacteria Bacillus licheniformis (in the case of the Playgro teether) or Bacillus cereus (in the case of the Nuby teethers). These bacteria generally do not cause illness. However, the bacteria can affect children with weakened immune systems, causing stomach pain, vomiting, and diarrhea, if the teether is punctured and the liquid from the teether is ingested.
