SodaStream recalls thousands of bottles due to danger they could rupture

The company is set to recall close to 51,000 of its carbonating bottles in the United States and about 7,600 sold in Canada, according to CNN.

SodaStream said it had not received any reports of injuries related to the defective bottles that resulted from a manufacturing defect.

The bottles involved in the recall are one-liter, blue-tinted plastic carbonating bottles with "SodaStream" and "Dishwasher safe" printed on them. The potentially unsafe bottles were distributed nationwide from February 2016 until January 2017 for around $15 and have the expiration "4/2020" printed on the warning label. The bottles were sold between February 2016 and January 2017.

They were sold between March and November of previous year and have a April 2020 expiry date. There is a blue cap and blue base on the bottle. Competitors Sparkling Drink Systems and Keurig offer similar at-home sparkling water and soda makers, but their products don't require costly and difficult-to-dispose-of Carbon dioxide cartridges.

Consumers who had bought the affected bottles are being instructed to stop using them immediately.

The company urges customers to return the bottles for a refund. Alternatively, you can also visit www.sodastreamvoluntaryrecall.com for more information.
