Don’t buy these bottles on Amazon, US regulators say

A baby bottle maker that sold its products exclusively on Amazon is recalling them after finding lead levels above the federal limit.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced last week that NUK had recalled its 240ml First Choice glass baby bottles because its markings contained unsafe levels of lead.

“Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause health problems,” the CPSC said.

According to the commission, no injuries or incidents have occurred due to the lead levels.

These glass bottles with a latex teat were intended for children aged 0-6 months in the UK market, not the US.

“The NUK brand name is in white letters, 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 January 2018 and May 2022, costing around $20 each.

The agency said 100 units of the bottle were purchased in the United States 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 to find out how to return the product and receive a refund.
