The recalled water bottles sold for between $US9 and $US24 at stores nationwide and online from April 2018 through June 2019.

The products are called “Contigo Kids Cleanable” water bottles, and they come in three sizes, including 13 ounces, 14 ounces, and 20 ounces. The recall affects only bottles with a black-coloured spout base and cover.

The company said anyone with the water bottles should “immediately stop using the recalled water bottles, take them away from children and contact Contigo for inspection instructions and a free replacement lid.”
