Contigo Issues Kids’ Water Bottle Recall
Drinkware manufacturer Contigo, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Health Canada and Mexico’s Procuraduría Federal del Consumidor, has issued a recall of its Contigo Kids Cleanable water bottles due to a choking hazard. The water bottle’s clear silicone spout can detach. The company has received 149 reports of the spout detaching including 18 spouts found in children’s mouths.
Between April 2018 and June 2019, approximately 5.7 million of the bottles were sold in the U.S.—in addition to about 157,000 sold in Canada and 28,000 sold in Mexico—at Costco, Walmart, Target and other stores nationwide and online on various websites.
The recall involves Contigo Kids Cleanable water bottles, in which the base and cover of the clear silicon spout is black. Only black-colored spout base and spout cover models are included in this recall. Contigo is printed on the rim and along the front, near the bottom of the bottle. The water bottles 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. The water bottles were sold individually as well as in two-packs and three-packs.
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.
