Bindle Bottle water bottles are being recalled over concerns they may contain an area of exposed lead.
According to an announcement from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, unpackaged food stored in the bottom storage compartment of the bottle may have been adulterated by lead and could pose health problems to people or animals eating that adulterated food.
The agency warns that people with high blood levels of lead may show no symptoms, but the condition may cause damage to the nervous system and internal organs, and could cause developmental issues in children.
The exposed lead could also affect pets. Clinical signs in dogs with acute lead poisoning may include lethargy, anorexia, behavioral changes, ataxia (wobbly gait), tremors and seizures.
The product comes in four sizes: 32 oz, 24 oz, 20 oz, and 13 oz. Bindle Bottle is also recalling the 24 oz bottle that is part of the Puppy Pack.
Bindle Bottles Inc. says the company has not received any reports of illnesses.
According to the FDA, the small, 0.4″ diameter soldering dot in the bottom storage compartment contained lead.
Consumers who purchased a Bindle Bottle are eligible to receive at-home repair kits to rectify the issue. These repair kits can be obtained by filling out a form at bindlebottle.com/pages/recallExternal Link Disclaimer. Consumers with questions may contact the company at email@example.com.
