Nearly six months after Contigo recalled 5.7 million kids' water bottles because the spouts posed a "potential choking hazard," the company is recalling the replacement lids for the same reason.
On Wednesday, the company issued a voluntary recall on its Contigo Kids Cleanable water bottles and replacement lids sent to consumers as part of the August 2019 recall, according to the recall notice posted on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website.
"Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled water bottles and the replacement lids provided in the previous recall, take them away from children, and contact Contigo for a free water bottle," the recall notice states. "Consumers who received replacement lids in the previous recall should contact Contigo for the new water bottle."
According to the notice, the company has received "427 reports of the spout detaching including 27 spouts found in children’s mouths."
The base and cover of the clear silicone spout on all the affected water bottles and replacement lids are black, the notice states. The word Contigo is printed on the rim and along the front near the bottom of the bottle.
The affected bottles come in three sizes: 13-ounce, 14-ounce and 20-ounce. They come in four colors – solid color, graphics, stainless steel and stainless steel solid colors – and were sold individually and in two-packs and three-packs.
The bottles were sold at Costco, Walmart, Target and other stores nationwide and online April 2018 through Feb. 7 for between $9 and $24.
