Playtex has recalled 3.6 million plastic children’s plates and bowls in response to a potential choking hazard.
The bowls and plates — sold between October 2009 and August 2017 at Babies“R”Us, Target, Walmart and Amazon, among other stores nationwide — have a clear plastic layer that a child can choke on if it bubbles or peels off.
So far, Playtex reports 372 cases of that plastic layer bubbling or peeling, 11 cases of children with the plastic in their mouths and an additional four cases of children choking on the layer, according to FoxCarolina.
The bowls and plates have a variety of printed designs on them, including cars, giraffes, princesses, construction scenes and superheros.
Never miss a local story.
Playtex is written on the bottom of the bowls.
According to WREG, the dishes were sold for $2.50 individually and $15 as a set.
The bowls were sold in multiple sets, including the Playtex DC Super Friends Bowls 3pk, Playtex DC Super Friends Plates 2pk and Playtex DC Super Friends Mealtime Set.
