Dear Valued L.L.Bean Customer,

If you have purchased or received a Kids’ Insulated Water Bottle sold by L.L.Bean under Item ID 297684, this product is subject to a product safety recall. Routine testing by the manufacturer resulted in a positive reading for the presence of lead on the outside bottom of the bottle where the outer vacuum layer is sealed. It was determined that some of the water bottles provided to L.L.Bean were erroneously sealed on the bottom with a solder bead containing lead instead of the lead-free solder bead originally specified. This could potentially expose the user of the bottle to the lead seal on the outside bottom of the water bottle. For your child’s safety, immediately stop using the water bottle and return the bottle to L.L.Bean.
