All 5.5 million units sold in the U.S. and Canada are being recalled, following a joint decision by Playtex parent organization Edgewell Personal Care, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Canadian government.
They say the choking risk comes from a clear plastic coating that can peel or bubble from the surface of the plates or bowls. The company received 372 reports of peeling or raised plastic from the products, according to Canada's health department, including 11 reports of the plastic being found in children's mouths. Four reports of choking on the plastic were also documented.
The product has been on the market in Canada in January 2010, selling about 1.9 million units. About 3.6 million units have been distributed in the U.S.
No serious injury has been reported in either country, but Health Canada and Edgewell Personal Care Canada say consumers should stop using the products and return them for a full refund.
The products feature brightly colored designs and are sold separately or in sets with plastic cups and cutlery.
Further information is available through Health Canada's "Recalls and safety alerts " page.
