Contigo has recalled nearly 6 million water bottles for children sold across North America due to a potential suffocation hazard.

The voluntary recall in the United States affects 5.7 million Contigo Kids-cleanable water bottles, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. [19659008] It was issued after the company received 149 reports on the release of the clear silicon spout, and presented a potential asphyxiation threat to children; Eighteen of the detached spouts were found in the children's mouths.

No injuries were reported, officials say.

The product was sold at Costco, Target, Walmart and other stores nationwide, as well as online between April 2018 and June 2019. It comes in three sizes – 13 ounces, 14 ounces and 20 ounces – and includes multiple colors, materials and graphics.

They can be purchased individually and in packages of two and three.

About 28,000 of the affected water bottles were sold in Mexico, and another 157,000 were sold in Canada, according to the Security Commission.

Consumers who purchased the recalled product can order a free replacement lid, according to the company.

Anyone with questions is encouraged to call Contigo on 262-0622. More information can also be found on the website.
