They say the choking risk comes from a clear plastic coating that can peel or bubble from the surface of the plates or bowls.

The products feature brightly coloured designs and are sold separately or in sets with plastic cups and cutlery.

The products had been on the market in Canada since January 2010, with about 1.9 million units sold here and 3.6 million units distributed in the United States.

No incidents or injuries in the United States have been reported.
