Playtex Recalls Children’s Plates and Bowls Due to Choking Hazard

October 3, 2017: The CPSC in conjunction with: Healthy Canadians:

Children’s Playtex plates and bowls have been recalled because 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.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled plates and bowls and take them away from young children. Consumers should contact Playtex for a full refund. Incidents/Injuries:
