An urgent recall has been issued for a popular line of dummies sold across Australia over fears babies could choke to death while using them.

Customers who bought BIBS Dummies, which are made by the company Chloe Layla and Co, are being warned to be aware of potentially deadly defects.

In a statement on their website issued on February 17, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) said that "a cord or ribbon attached to a dummy may pose a strangulation hazard".
