The company says it has received 3,066 complaints of mold forming on certain versions.According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website Friday morning: “This recall involves five types of spill-proof Tommee Tippee Sippee cups all with a removable, one-piece white valve. The five types include: First Sips Transition cup, Trainer Sippee cup, Sippee cup (including Cute Quips), Sportee bottle and Insulated Swiggle/Sippee tumblers.”
Experts say mold can develop on the removable, one-piece, white valve inside the cups when it remains moist and is infrequently cleaned.
The CPSC says the plastic drinking cups were sold in a variety of colors and character prints. Some of the cups include statements like: “You Pour I’ll Fling,” or “Drink Drop Repeat.”
The cups have a 7 to 10 oz. capacity and were sold for children ages 4 to 12 months.
If you have one of these cups, you are asked to stop using it. The company is offering free replacements through its website.
