Earlier this week Mountain Warehouse announced that it was issuing a recall covering several designs of kids’ water bottles due to a discovered choking hazard. The danger, says the company in its press release about the recall, is that if the drinking spout detaches it can free a small plastic ring. And if that ring is swallowed, a child could choke on it.
Only around 1000 of the recalled water bottles are believed to be in use in the U.S. New, they sold for about $10 and were offered in stores nationwide. They were on store shelves until at least September.
