Contigo has recalled millions of water bottles for posing a potential choking hazard to children, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.

On Tuesday, the agency revealed that the Chicago-based company has recalled their Contigo Kids Cleanable water bottles after they received 149 reports of the spout detaching from the bottle, with 18 of those cases reporting that the spouts were found in children’s mouths.

“The water bottle’s clear silicone spout can detach, posing a choking hazard to children,” the report read.

About 5.7 million water bottles have been recalled in the U.S., with an additional 157,000 in Canada and about 28,000 in Mexico.

The bottles were available in three sizes (13 oz., 14 oz. and 20 oz.) and four different colors, sold at Costco, Walmart, Target and other stores nationwide and online for $9 to $24.

No injuries were reported as of Tuesday, but Contigo requests that customers immediately stop using the recalled water bottles, which were sold between April 2018 and June 2019.
