Friday, 22 January 2016: BIG W is recalling water bottles from the Back to School Backpack Bundle (various styles) sold at BIG W stores nationally from 21 December 2015 to 21 January 2016.

Water bottles are being recalled from the following products:

  • 4PC BACKPACK BNDLE CLR PURPLE/PINK (Article Number: 944011)
  • 4PC BACKPACK BNDLE CLR BLACK/GREY (Article Number: 944008)
  • 4PC BACKPACK BNDLE CLR BLUE/ORANGE (Article Number: 944009)

  • 4PC PRINT BPACK ST DESIGN SOCCER (Article Number: 944006)

The article number can be found on the swing tag at the back of the backpack.

There is a risk the rubber top on the water bottle may become loose during use, which could result in it detaching from the bottle and creating a potential choking hazard.

Customers should immediately cease using the water bottle and return it to any BIG W store for a full refund.

All other components of the backpack bundle are not affected by the recall and can continue to be used.

BIG W apologises to its customers for any inconvenience caused by this recall.

Customers can call a toll-free service number for more information on 1300 244 999.
