Contigo has recalled 5.7 million Kids Cleanable Water Bottles because they pose a choking hazard to children. The recall also affects about 157,000 water bottles sold in Canada and about 28,000 sold in Mexico.

The choking hazard on the recalled water bottles stems from a clear silicone spout, which can detach. The affected water bottles have a black base and cover at the clear silicone spout, and are the only ones included in the recall.

The label of the recalled water bottles has Contigo printed on the rim and along the front near the bottom of the product. Contigo sold the water bottles in three sizes – 13-, 14-, and 20-ounces – and in four colors – solid color, graphics, stainless steel, and stainless-steel solid colors.

The water bottles were also sold individually and as a two- or three-pack at Walmart, Target, Costco, and other stores nationwide as well as on various online website from April 2018 to June 2019. The cost of the water bottle was between $8 and $24.
