Almost 6-million popular children's water bottles have been recalled by Contigo due to a potential choking hazard.

The Contigo Kids Cleanable Water Bottles were sold in Minnesota and nationwide at Target and Costco stores.

According to the U.S. Consumer product Safety Commission:

The water bottle’s clear silicone spout can detach, posing a choking hazard to children.  Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled water bottles, take them away from children and contact Contigo for inspection instructions and a free replacement lid.

Contigo has received 149 reports of the spout detaching, including 18 spouts found in children’s mouths.
