Millions of children’s plates and bowls are being recalled because a plastic layer can peel off, posing a choking hazard. Other recalled consumer products include toys that also can pose a choking hazard to infants.

Here’s a more detailed look:

CHILDREN’S PLATES AND BOWLS

DETAILS: Playtex plates and bowls for children. The plates have various printed designs including cars, construction scenes, giraffes, princesses, superheroes and more. Playtex is written on the bottom of the plates and bowls. The plates and bowls were sold separately and together as sets. A Mealtime set is comprised of a plate, a bowl, two utensils and a cup. They were sold at Babies”R”Us, Target, Walmart, and other stores nationwide and at Amazon.com from October 2009 through October 2017.

WHY: The clear plastic layer over the graphics can peel or bubble from the surface of the plates and bowls, posing a choking hazard to young children.

INCIDENTS: 372 reports of the clear plastic layer over the graphics bubbling or peeling. The firm has received 11 reports of pieces of the detached clear plastic found in children’s mouths, including four reports of choking on a piece of the clear plastic layer.

HOW MANY: About 3.6 million in the U.S. and about 1.9 million in Canada.
