Zak Designs Recalls Water Bottles Due to Choking Hazard

PHILADELPHIA-(WTXF)-Zak Designs announced that they are recalling water bottles sold at Target stores due to a choking hazard.

According to Zak Designs, the recall involves Zak Designs 26-ounce plastic water bottles. The 10-inch tall water bottles have a flip-top spout on a twist-off cap with colored inner plastic straws in clear, blue, gray, green, light purple or red. About 178,000 water bottles are included in the recall, according to the company.


The water bottles have popular characters on the front and come in a variety of colors including clear, gray, navy blue, pink, teal blue, gray with colored caps in red, blue pink and yellow. Characters include Captain America, a Batman design, Minions, My Little Pony, Spiderman, Star Wars aircraft, a Superman logo, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Thor and Wonder Woman. Mold number “14158” and “Zak Designs®” are embossed on the bottom of the bottles in the recall. Bottles with a black inner straw and black twist-off cap are not included in the recall. 

Zak Designs says they received nine reports of the inner plastic straw in the flip-top portion of the cap breaking, including seven reports of plastic fragments spit out by children using the bottle. No injuries have been reported.

The water bottles were told exclusively at Target stores during the “Back-to-College” promotion nationwide from June 2015 through July 2015 for about $10.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled water bottles and contact Zak Designs for instructions on receiving a free replacement cap with straw.
