Brita recalls children’s water bottles

Hello BritaBrita is recalling Dora the Explorer, Hello Kitty, Spongebob Squarepants, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle hard-sided water filter bottle for kids due to a laceration hazard.

From the Consumer Product Safety Commission:

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.

Consumers are told on the CPSC website to contact Brita. Consumers on are redirected back to the CPSC website which tells you to contact Brita.

I don’t have one of these products, but I did find the contact information: Brita’s phone number is 1-800-24-BRITA (1-800-242-7482) or email them via this link. Looks like the current solution is they’ll refund your money.
