NEW YORK -

Contigo has recalled millions of children’s cleanable water bottles after reports the spout can detach and pose a choking hazard.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, there were nearly 150 complaints, including 18 incidents in which the spout was discovered in a child’s mouth.

The recall only applies to the bottles that have a black color spout base and cover in 13, 14, and 20 ounces.

The products were sold at Costco, Target, Walmart and online between April 2018 and June 2019.

Consumers should immediately stop using the water bottles, and contact the company for a free replacement lid.
