Details about the recalled products

Mayborn USA voluntarily recalled five types of spill-proof Tommee Tippee Sippee cups made between December 2014 and March 2016, despite the company’s February announcement that it would issue new valves for sippy cups.

The recalled cups all have a removable, one-piece white valve.

Mold ingestion can cause gastrointestinal symptoms and infections, especially in people with compromised immune systems.

According to The Associated Press, Mayborn has received more than 3,000 reports of mold in the recalled cups.
