The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with GSI Outdoors, Inc., of Spokane, Wash., has announced a voluntary recall of about 6,700 Kids’ insulated water bottles because the lead solder at the exterior base of the bottle contains high levels of lead. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues.
This recall involves five styles of kids’ insulated water bottles with printed graphics. The bottles are 13.5 ounces capacity with the following color prints: Dino Bones, Flower Power, Orange Grid camo, Purple Tie Dye Butterfly and Robo Shark. The item identification number 297684 is printed on a sticker on the bottom of the bottle. Also printed on the sticker are “PO#844” and “BB2D2-LLB-R45-0413.”
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled water bottles and contact L.L.Bean at 800-555-9717 from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. ET daily or online at www.llbean.com and click on “Recall & Safety Info” for more information on how to receive a full refund.
