If your child's back-to-school gear includes a Contigo water bottle you will want pay attention to a new recall impacting about 5.7 million children's water bottles.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Contigo, the company is recalling millions of Contigo Kids Cleanable water bottles.
"Contigo identified that the water bottle's clear silicone spout in some cases may detach from the lid of the water bottle. The incident rate of consumers reporting the separation of the silicone spout is very low and no injuries have been reported," Contigo states in a notice posted to its Facebook page.
According to the CPSC, "Contigo has received 149 reports of the spout detaching including 18 spouts found in children's mouths."
"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," the CPSC states.
All of the recalled water bottles have a black color spout base and spout cover.
If you purchased a Contigo Kids Cleanable Water Bottle from April 2018 through June 2019 you should go to www.gocontigo.com/recall to order a free replacement lid.
