For the second time in six months, Contigo is urging parents to stop using its water bottles, made specifically for kids, after learning—again—that the bottles could present a choking hazard.

Contigo, in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, has recalled 5.7 million of its Kids Cleanable Water Bottles. Bottles that have a black spout base and spout cover are affected by the action. They come in 13-, 14- and 20-ounce sizes.)

The same product was previously recalled in August 2019. And the CPSC says any parent who received a replacement cap in that recall should contact the company for a new water bottle.

To date, the company has received 427 reports of the spout detaching from the bottle. Of those, 27 have ended up in children’s mouths. No injuries have been reported.

The bottles were sold in Costco, Walmart, Target and other retail stores between April 2018 and earlier this month. Prices ranged from $9 to $24.

Several children’s products have been recalled over the past 18 months. In December, 2018, infant ibuprofen was recalled over concerns the dosage was too strong. Nearly two months later, the same company recalled more ibuprofen for the same reason. And last August, Pfizer recalled children’s Advil on overdose fears.
