Created: 08/19/2014 11:44 AM WHEC.com

Brita is recalling 242,000 children's water bottles due to a possible laceration hazard. The company says the bottle's lid can break into pieces with sharp edges.

The 15-ounce bottles are six-inches tall with cartoon characters, Dora the Explorer, Hello Kitty, Spongebob Square Pants and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the side.

The bottles were priced between $13 and $19 and were sold at Target, Walmart and other U.S. retailers.

Consumers can return the bottles to the store or Brita for a full refund.
