About 2,900 Children’s Water Bottles have been recalled due to a potential choking hazard.  There has been one report of the bottle’s spout breaking off in a child’s mouth while the child was drinking from it.  Although no injuries have been reported, this faulty design presents a serious choking hazard.  The recalled products were manufactured in June 2012 and can be identified by this manufactured date which is embossed on the bottom of the bottle.
