BRITA Recalls Children’s Water Bottles Due to Laceration Hazard

Brita is recalling about 242,500 hard-sided water filter bottles for kids in four different designs.  The lid could potentially break into pieces with sharp points resulting in a laceration hazard.

The four recalled children’s water bottles have popular cartoon characters on a hard-sided plastic bottle. Characters and bottle colors include Dora the Explorer®, violet; Hello Kitty®, pink; SpongeBob Square Pants®, blue; and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles®, green. The bottles stand 6 inches tall, hold 15 ounces of liquid, have white lids that screw off and have fold-up straws and filters that sit inside the straw below the lid.  Each bottle bears a Brita logo and features the image of a popular children’s cartoon character. The removable plastic wrap on the bottle at time of purchase has the model number BB07 and the following UPC codes: 60258-35883 on the Dora the Explorer, 60258-35914 on the Hello Kitty, 60258-35880 on the SpongeBob Square Pants and 60258-35882 on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Brita has received 35 reports of the lids breaking or cracking, however no injuries have been reported.  If you or your child has one of these water bottles, stop use immediately and contact Brita to get a postage-paid shipping package to return the bottles and get a full refund.
