If you have one of these water bottles, please take it away from your child immediately. Contigo (a water bottle company) has issued a second recall on “about 5.7 million of its kids water bottles over fears its spout can detach and cause a child to choke.”(CNN.com)
The first recall was issued back in August of 2019. You can find a press release about the first recall here.
The most recent recall, however, also includes the replacement lids that were provided in the August 2019 recall. A February, 2020 release by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says “Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled water bottles and the replacement lids provided in the previous recall. Take them away from children.”(CPSC.org)
Contigo has received more than 425 reports of the spout detaching from the bottle. At least 27 of those detached spouts were found in the mouths of children.
The Kids Cleanable Water Bottles were sold between April 2018 and February 7, 2020 in Target, Walmart, Costco, and various online stores. These water bottles come in four colors (solid, graphics, stainless steel and stainless steel solid colors), and in three sizes (13 oz., 14 oz., and 20 oz.). They were sold in the price range of $9 and $24. They were sold individually and in two-packs and three-packs.
Only models that have a black colored base and spout cover (as shown in the picture above) are being recalled.
