A Massachusetts-based company issued a recall on May 27 on an estimated 3.1 million spill-proof cups after receiving complaints that harmful mold is likely to develop in a valve of the cup.
Five types of cups were covered by the recall, which affects a removable white valve of some “Tommee Tippee Sippee” spill-proof cups. Recalling company Mayborn USA and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) are aware of 3,066 mold complaints and 68 incidents of children suffering from vomiting and diarrhea as a result of the product. People who might have the affected cups are instructed to refrain from using them and to call the recalling company to get a cup replacement for free. When molds are ingested, individuals are at risk of suffering infections and gastrointestinal problems, the CPSC advised.
