Eddie Bauer Outlet Store Has Recalled Stainless Steel Lunch Bottles

Redmond, WA  (SafetyAlerts) -Eddie Bauer Outlet Stores has recalled about 4,000 stainless steel lunch bottles. The insulated bottles have a weak seal and can leak hot liquids, which poses a serious burn hazard to consumers.

Eddie Bauer has received four reports of the insulated bottles leaking, though no injuries have been reported.

The recalled Wide Mouth Lunch Bottles are 32 oz. stainless steel containers, with a black base and handle, a black carrying strap, and a two-piece lid (including a drinking cup). The insulated bottles have the words "Eddie Bauer" written on one side of the container (which is located 1 3/4 inches from the lower edge of the plastic collar), and a label that reads "Eddie Bauer Wide Mouth Lunch Bottle" on the other. On the bottom of the bottle there is a sticker that reads "Made in China." Eddie Bauer outlet stores nationwide sold these insulated bottles from September 2001 through November 2001 for about $24.

Consumers should stop using these bottles immediately and return them to any Eddie Bauer store for a full refund. For more information, consumers can call Eddie Bauer at (800) 426-6253 between 5 a.m. and 11 p.m. PT Monday through Sunday or log on to the company's website at

Lunch bottles that have that words "Made in Korea" printed on the bottom or have the "Eddie Bauer" signature logo printed 1 1/4 inches from the lower edge of the plastic collar are not part of this recall.
