(Meredith) – Playtex is recalling 3.6 million children’s plates and bowls after discovering a potential choking hazard. On each plate and bowl, there is a clear, plastic layer that can peel or bubble, which young children may accidentally ingest.

Playtex has already received 372 reports of the clear, plastic layer over the graphics bubbling or peeling and 11 reports of pieces of the plastic found in children’s mouths.

There were also four reports of children choking on a piece of the clear, plastic layer.

About 3.6 million plates and bowls have been affected, including 1.9 million in Canada.

“Playtex” is written on the bottom of the plates and bowls, which were sold separately or sometimes together as a set. A "Toddler Mealtime Set" is comprised of a plate, a bowl, two utensils and a cup.

These products were sold at Babies“R”Us, Target, Walmart, and other stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com from October 2009 through August 2017 for about $2.50 for a single plate or bowl and $15 for a Mealtime set.   

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled plates and bowls, take them away from young children, and Playtex for a full refund.
