    I was looking for this teether everywhere as I have seen them around and decided to get one...now I've found out they have been recalled due to low water quality inside them.
    :shock:

    Phew! Glad to be of help :)

    I really like the one shown above....even went on a mission to boots, mothercare etc etc...finally in John Lewis I asked if they had any and they told me it had been recalled.

    I think maybe if you send it to them you'll get a replacement one the same...surely they can just make sure the water is good quality and that'll be the end of it.
    I'd still get one when they go back on the shelves.

    Grrrrrr

    Went to 3 different shops to get one of these today instead:

    It's a bit like a dummy but it is gum-shaped inside so they can bite on it when teething.
    Anyway...3 shops THEN I find out they are discontinued!
    Eventually got the last one from Sainsburies YAY!

    Thats good.... please can you let me know if you get one the same in return? I'd still want one when they sort out the water thing. I'd HAVE to get it from John Lewis though as I would trust that it's new stock as they were the ones that told me about it.

    they were recalled (the tomme tippee one that looks like a dummy has been discontinued)
    Maybe when they put nice water in the round ones again they'll be back on sale.

    Hey thanks for that, they look nice but you're right, they're not the water filled kind!.
    I'm going to keep my eyes open and will let you know if I see the water one back in the shops again.

    I looked up that bacterium and this is what I found... :shock:

    Wow serious stuff. I wonder if there were animals or plants around the tanks the water was in?

    Exactly laura - i mean that the tanks that held the water that was to go into the teethers - was that the origin of the bacteria? If so are ANY water filled teethers to be trusted?

    Hi

    I know what you mean about not trusting them now you think they would do these tests before sending them out :roll:
    Well guess its our own judgement now.
