This pertains to Pura Kiki brand Made Safe Certified insulated stainless steel baby bottles being sold in 2018.
The manufacturer admitted (as recently as this week, in a communication to a customer) to knowing that their old-stock product inventory is still available to purchase (likely both online and at brick and mortar retailers, because no recall was either voluntarily implemented by the company or demanded by the CPSC) and that this old stock contains neurotoxic lead (Pb).
The lead in this baby bottle can become available to the user (babies) when the product fails with normal use (which it often does, as my followers have repeatedly reported to me) when the bottom cap falls off the bottle.
The company continues to assert that the bottom cap does not come off their insulated baby bottles (to expose the solid lead sealing dot) with normal use as intended, however this assertion is simply not true.
In my opinion, enough of their baby bottles have failed in this way (a failure mode that they are well aware of) that the company should have taken more aggressive action to remove the bottles with lead from their product supply, and they have not yet done so (even though it has been more than a year [almost 18 months!] since they first learned of this concern.)
As always, thank you for reading.
As you can imagine – this work (exposing the use of toxicants in consumer goods, both new and vintage) often makes me enemies, not friends. I could not continue doing what I do without your support. Please, if you can, consider chipping in towards my advocacy today. It makes a huge difference in my ability to keep doing what I do!
