Children's plates, bowls recalled because of choking hazard

Children's plates, bowls recalled because of choking hazard

The plates and bowls say Playtex on the bottom and have a colored rim and non-slip bottom.

At least 11 children have been found with plastic in their mouths, with four of them briefly choking, the United State Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement Tuesday.

Playtex is recalling sets of children's plates and bowls over concerns that a plastic layer could pose a choking hazard to young children.

They include printed designs that feature cars, princesses, construction scenes and other options. It can be removed from the plates and bowls, which could be harmful to small children.

The Canadian distributor of the products has informed Health Canada that the decals on the tableware can bubble or peel off, causing a choking hazard. It was $2.50 for a single plate or bowl and $15 for a mealtime set.
