The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), issued a recall for five styles of the GSI Outdoors insulated water bottles sold exclusively at L.L. Bean.
According to the CPSC, the bottles have high levels of lead in the solder at the exterior base of the bottle. Lead, if ingested by young children, is toxic and can cause adverse health issues.
L.L. Bean is offering a full refund on the 6,700 bottles that were sold. According to its website, the bottles went under routine testing by the manufacturer and resulted in a positive reading for the presence of lead.
So far, no injuries have been reported, but the company encourages anyone with the affected bottles to immediately stop using the bottle and return it to L.L. Bean.
