According to the U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, about 7,000 Vulli teething rings are being recalled by the Dana Point company that makes them. Apparently if the ring is punctured, bacteria and mold can grow inside, causing an ingestion hazard to infants if the liquid is swallowed. Symptoms include diarrhea and vomiting.
The teething rings were made in France and sold at children's stores nationwide and at Amazon.com from January 2008 through November 2010. To learn more about this recall, visit the U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's website atwww.cpsc.gov.
If you have one of these teething rings, stop using it immediately. The company has reported no illnesses as of this time. However, if your child has gotten sick because of one, contact your doctor and then an experienced California Personal Injury attorney as soon as possible to determine if you can be compensated for your child's sickness and expenses.
