Many parents count on that reliable pacifier to help ... well, pacify ... cranky infants.

However, Playtex has found there's a problem with more than a million pacifier holder clips solder over the past three years. The company has launched a safety recall, and you should check your child's pacifier.

The recall affects about 1.25 million in the U.S. and 150,000 in Canada

It involves Playtex pacifier holder clips that attach a pacifier to items like clothing, diaper bags and strollers. It is a plastic clip with a figure and a "Playtex" copyright logo that slides up and down to adjust the clip, a ribbon and a clear plastic ring that stretches to fit the pacifier. The pacifier holder was sold in green with a monkey figure, pink with a flower and blue with a tow truck.

Playtex has received 99 reports of the holder cracking or breaking. No injuries have been reported. You should immediately take the recalled pacifier holders away from infants and contact Playtex for instructions on how to return the product for a full refund.

The holder clips were sold Walmart, Burlington Coat Factory, other major retailers, juvenile product, baby and discount stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, among others, from July 2010 through October 2013 for about $3.

Playtex toll-free at 888-220-2075 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online at www.playtexproducts.com and click on Recall for more information.
