Study finds mold, staph bacteria on pacifiers

UNDATED (WHDH) -- Pacifiers are a comfort to crying infants but new research suggested they can also provide babies with bacteria.

In a study from Oklahoma State University, mold and staph bacteria were found on binkies.

They did not prove the contamination could lead to actual illness but most experts agree parents should replace pacifiers at least once a month.
