The maker of a line of children’s dinnerware has issued a recall because of a potential choking hazard.
Playtex Products is voluntarily recalling its plates and bowls, according to the company’s website.
The white polypropylene plates and bowls have designs such as cars, princesses, construction scenes and superheroes. They were sold separately and as sets from October 2009 to August 2017.
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, said the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
