   WASHINGTON (AP) -- Brita is recalling approximately 242,500 children's water filter bottles due to a possible laceration hazard.
 
   The company said Tuesday that the lid of the hard-sided bottles can break into pieces with sharp points.
 
   Brita has received 35 reports of lids breaking or cracking. No injuries have been reported.
 
   The recalled bottles include a violet bottle with Dora the Explorer, a pink bottle with Hello Kitty, a blue bottle with SpongeBob Square Pants and a green bottle with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Each bottle has a Brita logo and white lid.
 
   The bottles were sold online and at various retailers for about $13 to $19.
 
   Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the bottles and to contact Brita for a postage-paid shipping package to return the bottles for a full refund.
