The Bindle Bottle company has issued a voluntary recall for its insulated bottles, according to a notice published Thursday on the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) website.
The recall notice states that affected products “may contain a piece of exposed lead in the lower storage compartment,” which could contaminate unwrapped food.
For those who consume such food, it can “cause health problems,” according to the notice.
During testing, lead was found in a bare solder tip in the dry storage container at the bottom of the Bindle bottles, the report said.

Thirty two-ounce, 24-ounce, 20-ounce and 13-ounce Bindle bottles, in addition to those included in the company’s “Puppy Pack” product, are subject to the recall if purchased before February 15, according to the notice and an FAQ page on the company’s website.
“Bindle Bottle knows you place your trust in us and we take the safety of our customers seriously,” the company said on its website. “We sincerely apologize to you for the inconvenience of this voluntary recall. At Bindle Bottle, we pride ourselves on putting safety first and we will stand behind our product line.”
Affected products were sold nationwide.
They were sold on the Bindle Bottle and Amazon websites. Stores and promotional distributors also offered them.

“Bindle bottle production has been suspended and will be overhauled in the future, eliminating the presence of exposed lead on future products,” the recall notice said.
There are no reports of illnesses, the report said.
The company has set up a page on its website where customers can fill out a form to request a repair kit.
People who own the bottles should not use the lower compartment until they have received the repair kit and put it to use, according to Bindle Bottle. The company said the stainless steel interior of the water bottles is “completely unaffected” and can be used for liquid storage.
