Affected models only have a black spout base and black spout cover. 

The water bottles were sold at Walmart, Target, Costco, and other stores nationwide and online from April 2018 through June 2019.

They come in three sizes, with multiple colors and were sold individually as well as in two and three packs for between $9 and $24.

Contigo has received 149 reports of the spout detaching including 18 spouts found in children's mouths.

Parents are urged to contact the company immediately for inspection instructions and to get a free replacement lid.
