Contigo is recalling almost 6 million children's water bottles for the second time because their spouts can come loose and pose a choking hazard.
The recall concerns Contigo Kids Cleanable water bottles and replacement lids given to consumers as part of an earlier product recall in 2019. This emerges from a message from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. The company has received more than 400 reports of detachment of the spout of the product, including 27 spouts in the mouth of children.
The bottles were sold online and nationwide at retailers such as Costco, Walmart and Target for $ 9 to $ 24 from April 2018 to February 7, 2020. About 5.7 million of the recalled bottles were sold in the United States. Another 157,000 were sold in Canada and 28,000 in Mexico. They were sold individually and in packs of two and three.
Consumers should stop using the recalled bottles and replacement lids, take them away from children, and contact the company for replacement, the CPSC said.
The recall affects both single-color water bottles and graphics. The bottom and cover of the clear silicone spout in the recall are black, with "Contigo" printed on the edge and along the front near the bottom of the bottle. The water bottles are available in three sizes: 13 ounces, 14 ounces and 20 ounces.
