More than 175,000 water bottles that were sold exclusively at Target are being recalled due to a choking hazard, according to a government notice.

The recall involved 178,000 of Zak Designs' 26-ounce bottles, which were sold as part of a "Back to College" promotion.

So far, the company "has received nine reports of the inner plastic straw in the flip-top portion of the cap breaking, including seven reports of plastic fragments spit out by children using the bottle," but no one has reported an injury yet.
