NUK of Germany is recalling about 177 NUK First Choice 240 mL glass baby bottles sold in the U.S. and Canada.

The markings on the outside of the bottles contain levels of lead that exceed the federal lead content ban. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues.

No incidents or injuries have been reported.

This recall involves NUK-branded First Choice glass baby bottles (ASIN B0027SVJ9O) that were manufactured for the U.K. market only and not intended for sale in the U.S.

The glass bottles have a latex teat intended for 0 to 6 months old in 240 mL size. The bottles include the brand name NUK in white lettering, a graduated volume scale in white markings, and white and gray stars on the outside of the bottle.

The baby bottles, manufactured in Germany, were sold online at Amazon.com from January 2018, to May 2022, for about $20.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled glass baby bottles and contact NUK for information on how to return the recalled baby bottle and receive a full refund.

Consumers can register for a kit to return the baby bottles for free here. Astir Care (Amazon seller) is contacting all known purchasers directly.

Consumers may contact NUK online or toll-free at (888) 685-1238 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (ET) Monday through Friday for more information.
