Nuk baby bottles sold on Amazon recalled over high lead levels
Takata recalls 10 million more airbags; Virgin Galactic’s out-of-this-world milestone
Fox Business Briefs: Takata recalls 10 million more airbags and there are fears they may explode due to defective inflators.
A baby bottle manufacturer recalled a product sold exclusively on Amazon due to its high levels of lead.
Last week, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the NUK baby bottles were being recalled because the markings on the outside of some bottles contained lead with levels higher than the federal limit.
"The markings on the outside of the bottles contain levels of lead that exceeds the federal lead content ban. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues," the CPSC announced on their website.
The agency noted that 100 units of the bottle were sold in the U.S., with 77 being purchased in Canada. The purchases took place over a four-year period between January 2018 and May 2022, and the product cost consumers approximately $20 per unit.
