5.7 million kids water bottles recalled because of choking hazard
WASHINGTON — Contigo Kids Cleanable Water Bottles are being recalled from grocery stores such as Walmart, Target and Costco for posing a choking threat.
There are 5.7 million bottles included in the recall. In addition, about 157,000 were sold in Canada and about 28,000 sold in Mexico.
The Contigo bottles’ clear silicone spout can detach, rendering it a possible choking hazard, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The bottles come in three sizes — 13-ounce, 14-ounce and 20-ounce — and include multiple colors, materials and graphics.
Contigo reported the bottles were sold individually, as well as in two packs and three packs. The recalled bottles were sold from April 2018 through June 2019.
Contigo has received 149 reports of the spout detaching so far, and 18 of those reports said the spouts were found in children’s mouths.
