CamelBak Products LLC is recalling certain caps across three dates codes that were sold with the CamelBak Podium and Peak Fitness water bottles. This is because there have been a small number of reports that a small silicone valve in the affected caps could release. If the silicone valve releases it could pose a choking hazard. In the interests of consumer safety and out of an abundance of caution, CamelBak gave notice of its voluntary recall of the affected caps to the ACCC. The voluntary recall relates to the three batches of the caps sold with the CamelBak Podium and Peak Fitness water bottles.
We value our customers safety and are committed to full transparency, which is the reason we elected to voluntarily report this to the ACCC and recall the caps.
The recall notice as advertised by the ACCC can also be found here:
