Contigo recalls 5.7 million kids water bottles due to choking hazard

Contigo is recalling its kids cleanable water bottles because of a choking hazard. Officials say consumers should immediately stop using the product.

The company has received 149 reports of the spout detaching including 18 spouts found in children’s mouths.

The company says only black color 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.

Contigo says 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 product was sold at Costco, Walmart, Target and other stores nationwide and online on various websites from April 2018 through June 2019 for between $9 and $24.
