SodaStream recalls thousands of bottles due to rupture danger
Maker of water carbonation machines blames manufacturing defect.
OTTAWA — SodaStream is recalling thousands of its bottles in Canada and the US because of a danger they may rupture when a user is in the process of carbonating water.
The maker of water carbonation machines said it was voluntarily recalling the bottles due to a manufacturing defect.
No injuries have been reported, but customers are being told to stop using the bottles and contact the company for information on how to return the product for a refund.
According to the recall alert posted online, nearly 7,600 bottles were sold in Canada.
About 51,000 were sold in the US.
SodaStream said the one-litre bottles are tinted blue, marked dishwasher safe and have a blue plastic bottom and a blue cap.
They were sold between March and November of last year and have a April 2020 expiry date.
The SodaStream drinksmaker forces carbon dioxide gas from a pressurized cylinder into water to make it fizzy. The product includes one or more reusable beverage bottles.
SodaStream’s US headquarters is in Mount Laurel, NJ.
