Shelton-based Playtex is recalling about 3.6 million children’s plates and bowls sold in the United States 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.

Playtex has received 372 reports of the clear plastic layer over the graphics bubbling or peeling. There have been 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.

The recalled 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 is written on the bottom of the plates and bowls.

The plates were sold at Babies “R” Us, Target, Wal-Mart, and other stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com from October 2009 through August 2017.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled plates and bowls and contact Playtex for a full refund. The company can be reached at 888-220-2075 or online at www.playtexproducts.com and click on “Recall” for more information.
