Contigo issues recall of 5.7 million kids water bottles due to choking hazard

UNITED STATES – Contigo has issued a recall of more than five million kids water bottles due to a choking hazard.

The company says the water bottle’s clear silicone spout can detach, creating a choking hazard to children.

The base and cover of the clear silicon spout will always be black. Only black color spout base and sprout cover models are included in this recall. The water bottles subject to recall come in three sizes: 13 ounce, 14 ounce, and 20 ounce, and four bottle colors: solid color, graphics, stainless steel, and stainless steel solid colors.

These water bottles were sold individually as well as in two and three packs at Costco, Walmart, Target, and other stores across the country as well as online between April 2018 and June 2019. The bottles cost between $9 and $24.

Consumers are urged to immediately stop using the recalled bottles, take them away from children, and contact Contigo for inspection instructions and a free replacement lid.
