It’s hard to keep up with all the baby product recalls because there are so many, but there’s a new one from Playtex that needs parents’ attention. Playtex has just recalled over 3-million kids' plates and bowls because of reports that the outer layer of plastic can come off them, which can cause kids to choke.
They’re recalling 3.6-million products in the U.S. and another 1.9-million in Canada because they’ve had 372 reports of the plastic coating on the plates and bowls bubbling, as well as 11 reports of pieces of the plastic layer being found in kids’ mouths and four reports of kids choking on that plastic.
The recall affects bowls and plates for kids that come in all kinds of different patterns from princesses to construction scenes. The bowls and plates have a colored rim and a small rubber rim on the bottom so it doesn’t slip and slide. They have the word “Playtex” stamped on the bottom and were sold from October 2009 through August 2017, at stores including Target, Walmart, and Babies “R” Us, and on Amazon, so pretty much anywhere you may have shopped.
If you have one of these bowls or plates, you can get info on a refund online at playtexproducts.com by clicking “Recall”, or by calling Playtex at 888-220-2075.
