A small piece of silicone on some Podium and Peak Fitness CamelBak water bottles can come off and create a choking hazard.
CamelBak is voluntarily recalling nearly 50,000 water bottles in North America due to a possible choking hazard. the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced today.
The recall covers CamelBak’s Podium and Peak Fitness water bottles – specifically some caps that came with those water bottles. According to the CPSC, a small silicone valve can come off and loosen, potentially creating a choking hazard.
The recall covers approximately 46,000 bottles in the US and another 13,000 across Canada. To date, CamelBak said it had received 14 reports of valve loosening with no reports of injuries.
The faulty caps have date codes H19039, H19063, or H19175 on the bottom of the cap and accompanied Peak and Performance fitness bottles in 17, 21, and 24-ounce sizes in a variety of colors. These bottles sold for $ 10-25 in stores and online between February 2019 and January 2021.
CamelBak recommends anyone who owns these bottles the brand immediately at 1-800-767-8725 8:30 am to 5:00 pm PT Monday through Friday or online at www.camelbak.com/recall or www.camelbak.com and click on “Recall information”. You can also see CPSC recall notification for more informations.
