SodaStream, the company that popularized making your own soda at home, just issued a recall on roughly 58,600 of its bottles. The company sold around 51,000 of these bottles in the U.S. and another 7,600 in Canada. SodaStream voluntarily recalled the bottles on February 21, after realizing certain one-liter, blue-tinted bottles have the potential to explode under pressure. This means if you pump the bottle full of CO2 or shake the bottle when it’s full of soda, it could explode.

Not all SodaStream blue-tinted, bottles are involved in the recall. Exploding bottles have the words “SodaStream” and “Dishwasher safe” printed on them, along with an expiration date of “4/2020” printed on the warning label, SodaStream reports.

The defective bottles were sold at several retailers, including Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Walmart, Amazon, and online on the company’s own website. Customers purchased the recalled soda containers between February 2016 and January 2017 for about $15.

Fortunately, no one has come forth and reported any injuries resulting from an exploding bottle yet. The recall is more of a preventative measure, Engadget reports. Back in 2012, SodaStream competitor iSi North America recalled its Twist ‘n Sparkle beverage system, after several of the bottles exploded.

What should you do if you own one of these bottles? SodaStream advises customers to stop using the defective bottles immediately, and to contact the company for a refund. You can contact the company through its website or by calling the toll-free number provided.

Google Home adds new camera features and support for Nest Cam Outdoor
The interface on Google Home allowing you to capture custom clips.

Google Home is one of the best smart home platforms, and it's just gotten more exciting with the rollout of new camera features and support for the Nest Cam Outdoor. These updates are currently limited to Public Preview users, though we expect to see them launched to all users soon.

One of the biggest additions is support for the first-generation Nest Cam Outdoor. Google will be rolling out eligibility to users over the next few weeks -- so if you're a Public Preview user and don't have access right away, you may have to wait a bit longer. Once the feature has been pushed to your camera, you can use it like you would any other device in Google Home. This includes having access to an updated camera history interface.

Best portable power station deals: Bluetti, EcoFlow, and more
Bluetti AC300 portable power station

Maybe you know already, or maybe you don't, but not all generators are gas-powered. The downside to a gas generator is, besides needing the fuel itself, you can't use them in various configurations. For example, you should never place a gas generator inside. That's super inconvenient in bad weather like the rain or cold. But portable power stations, on the other hand, which utilize electricity, even solar energy, can be placed indoors. They're safe because they're emission-free. They can also replace traditional gas generators to provide backup power for your home, or if you're living off-grid. Plus, it's all in the name. They're portable so you can use them virtually anywhere, like when you're camping, on outdoor adventures, by the pool, in your backyard during a party or barbecue, and much more. They can also be pretty expensive depending on the capacity you need, but deals and discounts go a long way towards making them both more affordable and more accessible. That's precisely why we've gathered up all of the best portable power station deals right here, in one place.
