A press release issued by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Field Operates states the water bottles were seized in five different incidents, and all were cases where the product originated from China -- destined for a California distributor.

"In each case, the importer of the merchandise was unable to provide requested paperwork demonstrating that the manufacturer of the goods was authorized to use a unique bottle shape which is a style patented and trademarked by the S’Well Bottle Company," the release states.

CBP reports 345,597 plastic and stainless steel bottles were manufactured in a style that mimicked the unique shapes and features trademarked by S’Well Bottle Company. Investigators say S'Well confirmed their trademarked design was infringed, "from use of the same cap to the fluting on the bottom of the bottle and everything in between. "
