Sodastream, the Israeli carbonated drinks company, has recalled 51,000 bottles in the US and a further 7,600 bottles in Canada over concerns they could explode when used.
Sodastream said it had not received any reports of injuries related to the defective bottles, but had urged customers to return them for a refund.
A statement from the US Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) said, “The bottles can burst under pressure, posing an injury hazard to the user and bystanders.”
Only bottles with the 4/2020 expiry date, blue-tinted, blue plastic cap and bottom, one-litre bottles marked dishwasher safe, are included in the warning and the CPSC urges consumers to return the bottles and receive a refund.
The bottles were sold in shops and online between February 2016 and January 2017.
