WASHINGTON, April 25 (UPI) -- U.S. regulators announced a voluntary recall of Gingham Bunny forks and spoons due to coloring that could come off with ill effects to children.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the coloring could present a choking or an ingestion problem for infants.

The recall involves flatware from the Gingham Bunny Flatware Collection that were imported from China by Reed and Barton Corp. of Taunton, Mass., and sold for $15 to $40 depending on the set purchased.

They were sold as just a feeding spoon or as a spoon and fork set. They were also sold as a three-piece set including a spoon, a bib and a bowl.

Consumers were advised to stop using the flatware and contact Reed and Barton for a full refund or a replacement.

Consumers can call 800-343-1383 for information.
