Choking hazard prompts Playtex recall

Playtex has recalled 3.6 million kids plates and bowls because of a choking hazard.

Playtex plates and bowls affected come in a variety of designs, including cars, giraffes, princesses and superheroes. They were sold at Babies "R" Us, Target, Walmart, and other stores throughout the US, as well as online through Amazon. In all, the clear plastic layer over the products' graphics has bubbled or peeled at least 372 times. There were 11 reports of pieces of the plastic found in children's mouths, including four reports of choking on a piece of the clear plastic.

The plates were sold separately as well as in a Mealtime set comprised of a cup, a bowl, a plate and two utensils.

According to Playtex no other products are included in this recall.
