Luv N’ Care, LTD, of Monroe, LA, is recalling all Nuby Gel Filled Teethers. These products have been found to contain Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus circulans in the gel. It’s said that 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.

A list of the recalled products can be obtained from the CPSC or by contacting Shanna Malone at Shanna.Malone@beasleyallen.com.
