The Sports Authority is recalling about 11,200 water bottles because they contain unsafe levels of lead, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Friday.
The recall applies to Alpine Design bottles sold through Sports Authority stores in the U.S. from April 2006 through September 2007 for between $5 and $8 US.
High amounts of lead can harm the nervous system, kidneys and other major organs. Anemia, a decline in red blood cells, can occur, as well as damage to the nervous system that may impair mental function. At worst, lead poisoning can cause seizures or death.
No associated injuries have been reported.
Consumers should stop using the product and return it to the store for a full refund.
