About 1.9 million of the affected products were sold in Canada between January 2010 and August 2017.

Playtex Mealtime Sets are being recalled in Canada and the United States. There have been four reports of children choking.

If you own any of the recalled products, stop using them immediately, and take them from young children. They word "Playtex" is stamped on the bottom.

Playtex is offering a full refund for anyone with the products.

The China-manufactured bowls and plates have "Playtex" written on the bottom, the firm said.
