Health Canada is warning consumers who’ve purchased children’s licensed plastic water bottles at Dollarama discount stores to remove them from children’s use and dispose of them. According to HC’s just-released advisory/recall notice, the stopper in the bottle’s pull-up-style drinking spout may break off, posing a choking hazard to small children.
Nearly 350,000 of the made-in-China, Faigie-brand bottles (model number 10-3003582), featuring Dora the Explorer, Spider-Man and Sesame Street themes, have been sold since 2007. Health Canada says it has received only one complaint from a consumer, however no injuries relating to the affected bottles have been reported.
For more information, consumers may contact Dollarama, which is headquartered in Quebec, by phone 1-888-755-1006 or email.
