Klean Kanteen Recalls Water Bottle Spouts

Published May 5, 2010

WASHINGTON, D.C. (BRAIN)—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Klean Kanteen, have issued a voluntary recall of about 1.2 million Sport Cap 2.0 water bottle spouts in the United States and 102,000 in Canada.

The water bottle spouts can break or crack, posing a choking hazard to children and adults.

The firm has received six reports of incidents of the water bottle spouts breaking or cracking in children's mouths as they were drinking from the bottles. No injuries have been reported.

The Sport Cap 2.0 water bottle spouts are made of black plastic and have an attachment loop. "Klean Kanteen" is stamped into the side of the cap.

These were sold at Outdoor sports stores, including LLBean, and grocery and specialty stores nationwide, and on the Web at www.llbean.com from April 2009 through April 2010 for $5 for the spout and between $15 and $28 when sold with a stainless steel water bottle. They were manufactured in China.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product and contact Klean Kanteen to receive a free mailing envelope to return the water bottle spout and to receive a free replacement.
