According to the AP and ABC News, water filtration giant Brita has recalled over 242,000 children’s filtered water bottles for a catastrophic defect resulting in bottles breaking and creating sharp plastic shards that pose a laceration threat to the child or parent. The affected products include the Children’s 15oz hardsided water bottles. So far there have been more than 3 dozen reports of bottles breaking resulting in the broken shards and fortunately we are not aware of any injuries at this time.

According to ABC News, the bottles being recalled include: “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.”

If you, or someone you know has one of these products, STOP USE IMMEDIATELY and contact Brita’s customer service department by calling (800) 926-2065 or online at www.brita.com/contact/

Brita has responded swiftly by offering to pre-pay return postage and offer a full refund.
