The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission has just issued a recall for select SodaStream bottles that may burst under pressure. Take a moment to make your “it me,” “Note 7,” “haha this bottle is basically Donald Trump” jokes, have a nice giggle, and let’s move forward.
An estimated 51,000 units are part of the US recall, though an additional 7,600 bottles were also sold in Canada. The bottles hold one liter of liquid, are blue-tinted, and labeled dishwasher-safe with an expiration date of April 2020. Under pressure — either from the carbonation process or shaking then opening while it’s full of fizzy water — the bottles could potentially explode and injure users with broken plastic.
The CPSC said these bottles were sold at Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, and other major retailers between February 2016 and January 2017. As of February, there were no reports of related injuries in either the US or Canada. Affected customers can request a full refund or replacement bottles directly from SodaStream.
