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.
