VOLUNTARY RECALL OF CHERUBS 'RETRIEVERS' ANNOUNCED

 STAMFORD, Conn., April 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Playtex Family Products Corporation, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), today asked consumers who own Cherubs Retrievers to discontinue use immediately and return the product to the company for a full refund. The retriever product, a clip-on accessory which fastens to a baby's clothing, is attached to a nylon ribbon with a Velcro fastener. It is designed to keep a pacifier within baby's reach and from falling to the ground.
 The Cherubs Collection is a division of Playtex Family Products Corporation. Playtex said that only the retriever was involved in this voluntary recall program. Neither the Cherubs Pacifier nor any other Cherubs or Playtex items are affected.
 Cherubs said it received isolated consumer complaints that some retrievers had separated into small parts. In response, the company voluntarily issued the recall, and discontinued manufacturing the product. There are no related injuries reported.
 The Cherubs Retriever retails for approximately $2.59. Consumers can return the product for a full refund, plus the cost of shipping and handling, to: The Cherubs Retriever Return, P.O. Box 728, Paramus, N.J. 07653. For further information, telephone toll-free at 800-222-0453.
 The CPSC is the federal agency responsible for consumer product safety. Some 15,000 different types of consumer products fall within the Commission's jurisdiction.
 To report an unsafe consumer product, consumers may call the CPSC's toll-free hotline number, 800-638-2772. A tele-typewriter number for the hearing impaired is 800-636-8270.
