Bindle is recalling all of its two compartment water bottles and has stopped producing them due to the presence of lead in the exposed solder dots in the lower storage compartment.
All Bindle water bottle colors and sizes sold before February 15 are affected by the recall, including the 24-ounce bottle of “Puppy Pack,” the Food and Drug Administration announced Thursday.
According to the FDA, bottle production has been suspended and the process has been overhauled to eliminate exposed lead.
Exposed solder dots in the lower storage compartment can leave lead particles on unwrapped food in the compartment, which can cause lead poisoning in humans and animals.
At the start of the recall, there were no reported health issues related to the bottle.
Consumer advocates have previously expressed concerns about the amount of lead in exposed points. Ashita Kapoor, associate director of product safety at Consumer Reports, said the bottles contained “exposed lead levels about 1,100 times the levels legally allowed in many consumer products.” pointed out.
Bindle said it’s safe to drink from the top of the bottle, but the storage compartment shouldn’t be used.
Bindle encourages customers to sign up for a free repair kit that includes rubber covers for the solder dots.
On the FAQ page, Bindle said customers with rubber covers on their bottles are not at risk of being exposed to lead, but they offer free replacement covers if the cover comes off. Available at
