H&M Hennes & Mauritz announced a recall of Children’s Water Bottles. H&M has received one report of an incident in England of the water bottle spout breaking off in a child’s mouth as the child was drinking from the bottle. No injuries have been reported.
The children’s water bottle’s spout can break off, posing a choking hazard to children.
The children’s water bottles were sold from July 2012 through August 2012. 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.
Approximately 2,900 children’s water bottles were sold at H&M stores with children’s departments nationwide from July 2012 through August 2012 for about $5.
According to the recall notice, consumers should immediately stop using the water bottle and return it to H&M for a full refund. For additional information, contact H&M toll-free at (855) 466-7467 or visit the firm’s recall page on its website at http://www.hm.com
