RECALL NOTICE: Contigo Kids Cleanable Water Bottles – Choking Hazard
I have some bad news for people who (like my family) are big fans of the Contigo Kids Water Bottles. I have purchased Kids Contigo Water Bottles before, but I have the ones with the snack tray that I bought last year and it does not look like these ones are affected. I know my daughter does put this silicone spout through lots of wear and tear though.
The manufacturer’s website has a form to fill out to order a replacement top, but if you bought these products through Costco, you are better off returning them for a full refund. You can do this even if you don’t have the receipt since Costco guarantees each product that they sell.
