TK Maxx is recalling 8,000 children's bottles sold in the Republic of Ireland

Did you buy one of these bottles?

Retailer TK Maxx have put out an urgent recall on 8,000 children's bottles amid worries that they may pose a choking hazard to children.

The water bottles were sold in the Republic of Ireland between December 2019 and March 2020.

The water bottles were sold with four possible designs which included dinosaur, robots and two unicorn variants (two of these designs are pictured above).

A rubber nib in the lid of the bottle has recently caused concerns as it may pose as a choking hazard.

TK Maxx parent company TJX Ireland Unlimited Company said;

"The bottle is constructed whereby a small plastic nib is held in the lid of the bottle.

When the lid is shut the nib is held against the mouthpiece to provide a water tight seal as to not let the water out when upside down.

The rubber nib may fall out of the lid and onto the mouthpiece, to which a child then may drink with the rubber nib in their mouth."

The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission says anyone who has the product should stop using it immediately and a full refund will be given if returned to any TK Maxx store.
