248,000 lunch boxes recalled

California Innovations, Inc. is recalling nearly 248,000 insulated and expandable lunch box sets due to leaking freezer gel in the freezer gel packs.

The Ci Sport three-piece lunch box, which comes with an aluminum bottle and freezer gel pack, was sold in Cost U Less, Leon Korol, and Costco from May 2007 to September 2008.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, California Innovations received two reports of dogs ingesting the gel from the freezer gel packs. One dog fell seriously ill and the other died. The gel, which contains diethylene glycol and ethylene glycol, is poisonous to humans.

Consumers who purchased the lunch box can return it to Costco for a full refund.
