CPSC Recalls Various Products Made in Mainland China
The CPSC has announced a recall of the following products made in mainland China.
Water Bottles. Contigo USA has issued a recall for some 5.7 million water bottles in the United States, about 157,000 water bottles in Canada and approximately 28,000 water bottles in Mexico because the water bottle’s clear silicone spout can detach, posing a choking hazard to children. This recall involves Contigo Kids Cleanable water bottles and replacement lids that were given to consumers as part of the August 2019 recall of this product. Only black coloured spout base and spout cover models are included in this recall. Contigo is printed on the rim and along the front near the bottom of the bottle. The water bottles come in three sizes (13 ounce, 14 ounce and 20 ounce) and four colours (solid colour, graphics, stainless steel and stainless steel solid colours). They were sold individually as well as in two-packs and three-packs at Costco, Walmart, Target and other stores nationwide, as well as on-line on various websites, from April 2018 through 7 February 2020.
Sleeper Accessories. Kolcraft Enterprises Inc. has announced a recall of approximately 51,000 inclined sleeper accessories because infant fatalities have been reported with other manufacturers’ inclined sleep products after the infants rolled from their back to their stomach or side, or under other circumstances. This recall involves the inclined sleeper accessory sold with the Kolcraft Cuddle ‘n Care 2-in-1 bassinet and incline sleeper (model number starting with KB063) and the Kolcraft Preferred Position 2-in-1 bassinet and incline sleeper (model number starting with KB061). Model numbers are located on the metal bar between the bassinets’ legs. The inclined sleeper is the only portion of the product that is being recalled. These products were sold at juvenile product stores and by mass merchandisers nationwide from March 2011 through December 2017.
Pistol Holsters. Browning Arms Company is recalling approximately 1,265 pistol holsters because the holster design can change the position of the safety switch on the firearm without the user knowing it. When this occurs, if the trigger is accidentally pulled the firearm could fire unexpectedly, posing an injury hazard to the user and bystanders. This recall involves leather pistol holsters designed to carry Browning 1911-380 and 1911-22 pistols. The holsters are brown with yellow stitching with the Browning buckmark logo branded on the front of the holster. They can be identified by item number 12904011 and UPC code 023614843702, which are printed on the back of the product packaging. These products were sold at sporting goods stores nationwide and on-line at www.browning.com from September 2017 through December 2019.
