There has been a recent recall for Crest and/or Arm and Hammer Spinbrush. The FDA reports that while turned on, brush heads have either “popped off” or broken off in the user’s mouth or near the face, causing cuts to the mouth and gums, chipped or broken teeth, swallowing and choking the broken pieces, and injuries to the face and eyes.
Crest reports a Safety Notice: Please remember to replace your brush head after 3 months of use, or if the brush is damaged, or if parts become loose. Extended usage, loose parts or excessive wear could lead to brush head breakage, generation of small parts and possible choking hazard. Inspect brush for loose parts before use.
