L.L. Bean recalling water bottles that may cause lead poisoning
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling a children’s water bottle that is sold exclusively at L.L. Bean.
The bottles are being recalled over concerns that they are contaminated by lead.
There are five styles of insulated water bottles being recalled, including the dino bones, flower power, orange grid camo, purple tie dye butterfly and robo shark.
These bottles were sold for about $20 from July 2015 through May 2016.
The bottles contain high levels of lead in the metal solder that is used on the outside base of the bottle. The recall notice says that the lead is toxic if ingested by young children and that it can cause adverse health issues.
Thus far, no injuries or incidents have been reported.
L.L. Bean is offering a full refund on all the 6700 bottles that have been sold.
