Bonsu, LLC d/b/a Miniware has recalled over 30,000 units of its teething spoons due to the ability of spoons breaking in a child’s mouth when being used as a teether, posing a severe choking hazard to infants.
The recalled Miniware teething spoons are made from food-grade silicone and are designed for infants to use during their teething phase at approximately 4-24 months of age. Bonsu has already received one report of the defect which involved an infant who bit through the silicone teething spoon, resulting in a piece separating inside the infant’s mouth.
The affected spoons were sold in a set of two and came in key lime, aqua, gray, peach, cotton candy, and lavender colors. “Miniware” is stamped in raised letters on the handle of the spoons.
The spoons were also sold in Meal Kit Configurations. The kits were “First Bites” that included spoons, bowl, suction foot, and lid. The spoons colors came in key lime, aqua, cotton candy, lavender, gray, and peach. The “First Bites Travel Kit” included a spoon, bowl, suction foot, and travel bag. The spoons came in lavender and aqua color. The “Sip and Snack” kit included a spoon, bowl, suction foot, and a drinking cup. The spoon came in peach and gray color.
The spoons could be purchased online on Miniware.com, Amazon.com, and in stores at Dillard’s, The Tot, Turquoise, The Mellowland, Mom Loves Me, and Bitte nationwide from December 2017 through March 2020 for between $14 and $42.
The company states that consumers should stop using the recalled teething spoons immediately.
