Are any of these baby choking hazards in your house?

A wide range of items are unsafe for babies, and choking is a top hazard. Even foods you might not give a second glance to such as stringy or melted cheese can pose a danger, and so can honey, nuts and seeds. With research, you are able to find out in advance which foods are unsafe.

However, when it comes to toys and other baby products, it is natural to assume they are safe if their recommended age range meshes with your child's age. After all, the toys would have gone through stringent processes before hitting store shelves, right? They may have, but that does not mean they are completely safe. To that end, here is a look at a few products undergoing recalls.

Bruin infant wiggle ball toys

These toys were available only at Babies 'R' Us and Toys 'R' Us from June 2016 to January 2017. They sold for $13 and feature a plastic back and rubber knobs that can become a choking hazard after detaching. In fact, there have been six reports of the knobs breaking off. Consumers should not let babies play with them and should return the balls to the store for a refund.

Children’s Playtex plates and bowls

These bowls are covered with plastic that may bubble or peel to create a choking risk. There have been 372 reported cases of peeling or bubbling, with four choking incidents. The plates and bowls feature various designs, such as superheroes, cars and giraffes, and were sold at a variety of retailers from October 2009 to August 2017. Parents should get in touch with Playtex for a refund.

Story Time bib and bootie sets for infants, ages three through six months

Rattles in the booties of this set under the brand name Nat & Jules could detach and cause children to choke. Parents should return the set to a store that features DEMDACO items for a refund.
