Reports of Choking Prompt Playtex Recall of 5 Million Children's Plates and Bowls


Washington, DC: Playtex, in conjunction with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, is recalling Playtex plates and bowls for children. The recall involves about 3.6 million plates and bowls sold in the US and a further 1.9 million sold in Canada. The recall follows reports of children choking on peeling plastic from the plates and bowls.

The plates have various printed designs including cars, construction scenes, giraffes, princesses, superheroes and more. The white polypropylene plates and bowls also have a colored rim on top and a non-slip bottom.

Playtex has received 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.

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.

The plates and bowls 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.
