Mombella replies to Amazon’s withdrawal
The Competition and Consumer Protection panel approved Amazon’s product recall. The teething toy for infants is subject to an immediate recall order issued by the company. In addition, they disclosed that parents might get a refund by contacting Amazon or any other purchase site. There are now over 40 damaged items in Ireland. Mombella sent a message on its Instagram explaining why the product was temporarily unavailable.
According to a statement sent by the firm, “The Mombella Mushroom was never recalled; nonetheless, owing to mandatory applications, we have discontinued selling on Amazon.” Mimi the Mushroom, our product, will soon be available again. In addition, the company shared a report on Instagram that said that the mushroom teether was subjected to many suffocation tests. They noted that the “uneven rim” of the teether makes it unlikely that the item would induce suffocation.
The manufacturer denied the RTE’s assertion that they issued a recall and said they had discovered a safety concern with the product. In addition to the Eco-Inspired Mushroom Teether Toy and the Mombella Mushroom Teether, both now under investigation, the Seewat Mushroom Teething Toy has also been recalled by the UK’s Officer for Product Safety and Standards due to similar suffocation concerns.
Dr. Daniel Ganjian, M.D., a pediatrician at the Province Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, California, notes that whenever there is a product recall if the product is comparable to yours, you should take it away from your kid. Even though there hasn’t been an official recall of mushroom teethers in the United States, Dr. Ganjian says that parents should follow their advice.

In the meanwhile, it is essential to keep safety recommendations about teethers front and center in your thoughts. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has strongly warned against giving children teether necklaces or beads due to the risk of suffocation or choking. Dr. Bauer recommends that parents only use BPA-, phthalate-, PVC-, and lead-free teething items. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using plastic and rubber toys to ease the discomfort of teething. Furthermore, the group suggests using twisted, frozen wet washcloths, massaging your baby’s gums gently, and discussing the use of acetaminophen with your child’s physician if your child seems to be in pain.
