Executives Indicted Over Baby Products: Some of the Luv N’ Care brand pacifiers and rattles broke too easily, creating pieces that could choke a baby, while others had protruding pieces that a child might choke on, according to the criminal indictment. Nouri Edward Hakim, his brother Joseph H. Hakim and their companies are charged with violating the federal Hazardous Substances Act. The companies are Luv N’ Care Ltd., Luv N’ Care International Inc. and Panda Knits Inc. The Hakims’ attorney, James Zellinger, said his clients had done nothing wrong. Criminal charges over product safety allegations are very rare.
