H&M Recalls Children’s Water Bottle
Popular multinational retail-clothing company, H&M, is recalling 2,900 of their children’s water bottles due to a serious safety hazard.
The 16-ounce water bottles include a spout that can break off when in use and cause a child to choke. The recalled water bottles were sold exclusively at H&M stores nationwide from July 2012 through August 2012 for about $5. The bottles, manufactured in Italy, come in a pink plastic crackle design and an all blue plastic design. The flip-top lids on the bottles are in coordinating pink and blue colors and “H&M Sweden” and “www.hm.com” are embossed on the bottom of the bottle.
No injuries have been reported but H&M has received one report of an incident in England of the spout breaking off in a child’s mouth as the child was drinking from the bottle. For more information about the recall, visit the company’s recall page.
