SAN ANTONIO – Check your children's water bottle. Contigo is recalling nearly 5.9 million Kids Cleanable Water Bottles over concerns they could pose a choking hazard.

The bottle’s clear silicone spout can detach and a child could choke on it. Contigo has 149 reports of the spout coming off, including 18 spouts found in children’s mouths.

The bottles were sold from April 2018 through June of this year at Walmart, Target, Costco and other stores, as well as online.

Only bottles with a black spout base and cover are included in the recall. The bottles come in three sizes and various colors and graphic designs, as well as in stainless steel.
