H&M recalls 2,900 children's water bottles
16-ounce water bottle's spout can break off, posing choking hazard
H&M is recalling 2,900 children's water bottles due to a possible risk of choking.
The water bottle's spout can break off, posing a choking hazard to children.
H&M said Tuesday that it has received one report of the spout breaking off in a child's mouth. No injuries have been reported.
The retailer, along with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, is asking that consumers stop using the bottles and return them to H&M for a full refund.
The 16-ounce water bottles are pink plastic with a crackle design or blue plastic and have flip-top lids in coordinating pink and blue colors. The bottles have "H&M Sweden" and "www.hm.com" embossed on the bottom.
The bottles were sold at H&M stores with children's departments nationwide from July through August for about $5. The bottles, which were manufactured in June 2012, contain the manufacture date in an embossed date clock on the bottom of the bottle.
