Children’s plates, bowls recalled because of choking hazard

The maker of a line of children’s dinnerware has issued a recall because of a potential choking hazard.

Playtex Products is voluntarily recalling its plates and bowls, according to the company’s website.


The white polypropylene plates and bowls have designs such as cars, princesses, construction scenes and superheroes. They were sold separately and as sets from October 2009 to August 2017.

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, said the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Consumers should contact Playtex to return the products for a full refund. They can call 888-220-2075 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central Time Monday through Friday or go online at www.playtexproducts.com.

The company has received 372 reports of the clear plastic layer bubbling or peeling, the CPSC said. There were 11 reports of pieces of the plastic found in children’s mouths, including four reports of choking on a piece of the clear plastic.

About 3.6 million were sold in the U.S., according to Playtex, at Babies“R”Us, Target, Wal-Mart, and other stores and online at Amazon.com.

What to do if you think you have a recalled product

There are many numbers and dates on the foods, drugs, cosmetics, and other products we use every day. Some help manufacturers track inventory, while others help retailers ensure quality. But when unsafe products must be removed from the market, these numbers and dates can also help identify them quickly.
