SodaStream Bottles Recalled
If you've been making your own soda at home, you may want to check your bottles.
SodaStream recently recalled over 51,000 plastic reusable bottles in the U.S. and another 7,600 in Canada that can reportedly "burst under pressure."
The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that thousands of the SodaStream 1-liter, blue-tinted, carbonated bottles could burst under pressure and possible cause injury to the user or bystanders.
And of course the bottles are under pressure as you use and fill them with CO2.
The company says there was a manufacturing defect that left the bottles unable to handle the pressure they were designed to withstand.
No one has been injured from the defect, but the company is playing it safe by recalling the 1-liter bottles with an expiration date of 4/2020 printed on the labels.
The recalled bottles were sold from February 2016 through January 2017 and retailed for $15 at Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Walmart, Amazon and more.
If you bought one of these defective bottles, you can contact SodaStream for a full refund.
