Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports 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, in violet color (pictured above); Hello Kitty, in pink color; SpongeBob Square Pants, in blue color; and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, in green color.

The recalled Bottles stand approximately six (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 Bottles at time of purchase has the model number BB07 and the following UPC codes: 60258-35883 on the Dora the Explorer Bottles, 60258-35914 on the Hello Kitty Bottles, 60258-35880 on the SpongeBob Square Pants Bottles, and 60258-35882 on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Bottles.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s design and presentation.

According to the CPSC, the lid can break into pieces with sharp points, posing a laceration hazard for children and adults. Brita has received 35 reports of lids breaking or cracking. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Children’s Water Bottles and contact Brita to receive a postage-paid shipping package to return the Bottles for a full refund.
