A baby bottle manufacturer that sold its products exclusively on Amazon is recalling them after finding levels of lead higher than the federal limit.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced last week that NUK had recalled its First Choice 240 mL Glass Baby Bottles because its markings contained unsafe levels of lead.
“Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues,” the CPSC said.
No injuries or incidents have occurred as a result of the lead levels, according to the commission.
These glass bottles with a latex teat were intended for 0 to 6-month-olds in the UK market, not the US
“The brand name NUK is in white lettering, a graduated volume scale in white markings, and white and gray stars are on the outside of the bottle,” CPSC said.
The bottles were sold over four years between Jan. 2018 and May 2022, costing about $20 per unit.
The agency said that 100 units of the bottle were purchased in the US and 77 sold in Canada.
The CPSC urged customers to contact NUK toll-free at 888-685-1238 Monday through Friday during normal business hours for information on how to return the product and receive a refund.
