New York, NY—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and H&M Hennes & Mauritz has voluntarily recalled about 2,900 children’s water bottles for choking hazards. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on September 18, 2012.
The recall was issued after discovering that the bottle’s spout can break off, which poses a choking hazard to children.
“The 16 oz. water bottles are pink plastic with a crackle design or blue plastic. The bottles have flip-top lids in coordinated pink and blue colors. ‘H&M Sweden’ and ‘www.hm.com’ are embossed on the bottom of the bottle. The recalled products were manufactured in June 2012. The water bottle contains the manufacture date in an embossed date clock on the bottom of the bottle. The inner circle on the clock contains the number 12 with an arrow between the two numbers. The arrow points at the number 6 in an outer circle of numbers,” the CPSC reports.
Consumers are advised to return the water bottle to H&M for a full refund.
For more information concerning the product recall, consumers are advised to contact H&M toll-free at (855) 466-7467 or visit www.hm.com.
