According to the official recall notice, Brita received 35 reports of broken or cracked lids, though no injuries were reported. The CPSC noted that the broken lids could cause lacerations.
The 15 oz., hard-sided bottles were available in four designs—Dora the Explorer, Hello Kitty, SpongeBob Square Pants and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles—and featured a fold-up straw with a built-in filter. They were sold at a number of retailers, including Target and Walmart, and on Amazon.com.
