Popular Children’s Water Bottle Recalled
Almost 6-million popular children's water bottles have been recalled by Contigo due to a potential choking hazard.
The Contigo Kids Cleanable Water Bottles were sold in Minnesota and nationwide at Target and Costco stores.
According to the U.S. Consumer product Safety Commission:
The water bottle’s clear silicone spout can detach, posing a choking hazard to children. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled water bottles, take them away from children and contact Contigo for inspection instructions and a free replacement lid.
Contigo has received 149 reports of the spout detaching, including 18 spouts found in children’s mouths.
