Popular hot water bottles recalled over fears of ‘serious injury’

A popular hot water bottle which has been on the market for four years has been recalled from Spotlight stores across the country.

The KOO 2L Hot Water Bottle has been pulled from sale over fears “the stopper could leak or seams could split”.

“Hot water may leak from the hot water bottle, increasing the risk of burns or serious injury,” the recall notice posted on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission website reads.


The affected hot water bottles have been available for sale from spotlight stores nationwide between 19 May 2016 and 13 July 2020.
