Contigo Recalls Kid’s Water Bottle for Second Time due to Potential Choking Hazard.
Back in August, Contigo issued a recall on 5.7 million Contigo Kids Cleanable Water Bottles due to a potential choking hazard.
The recall specifically involves the spout on the lid. The spout can detach causing a potential choking hazard.
This latest recall involves Contigo Kids Cleanable Water Bottles and the replacement lids that were given to consumers as part of the August 2019 recall.
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 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.
Contigo has received over 400 incidents of the new replacement spout detaching; 27 of those incidents the spouts were found in children’s mouths. No injuries have been reported so far.
Consumers should immediately stop using the water bottle and the replacement lids and contact Contigo for a free water bottle.
The bottles were sold at retailers nationwide including Costco, Walmart, Target and online on various websites from April 2018 through February 7, 2020 for between $9 and $24.
