A popular kids water bottle has been pulled from shelves at Smiggle over choking fears.

In a recall notice posted on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission Website, the company says the Spritz Water Bottles in various colours have been recalled nationwide.

“If the drink bottle is full and dropped with force onto its spout, the plastic nozzle inside the spout may break on impact,” the notice reads.
