Pottery Barn Kids is recalling Avengers and Darth Vader Themed Water Bottles due to lead paint violations, the Consumer Products Safety Commission states. Some 15,200 bottles are being recalled in the United States and another 430 in Canada. According to the CPSC website, the recall is being issued because “the gray paint on the metal portion of the water bottle can contain excessive levels of lead, violating the federal lead paint standard.”
The recalled products have the SKU number 7939721 printed on the price sticker, which is located on the bottom of the bottle. The products contain one of the following date codes: 12/2013, 8/2014 or 12/2014. On the underside of the bottle, there is a tracking label with the date code and the words “Pottery Barn Kids,” “LOT 1, BATCH 1” and “JINHUA, CHINA.” No injuries have been reported so far.
The stainless steel water bottles were manufactured in China by Amax Enterprises (HK) Limited and imported by Pottery Barn Kids, of San Francisco, CA. They were sold for about $16 at Pottery Barn Outlet stores around the country, in the Pottery Barn Kids catalog and online at www.potterybarnkids.com from June 2014 through September 2015.
