The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Target, yesterday announced a voluntary recall of approximately 264,000 Target Home Bunny Sippy Cup because the ear on the bunny sippy cup can poke a child in the eye area while using the cup for drinking, posing an injury hazard.
Target has received six reports of incidents where the plastic ear poked children during routine use of the product. Cuts and bruises were reported in three of these reports.
The recall involves two styles of Target Home Bunny Sippy Cups. The cups come with handles on both sides in pink and blue, female and male. Each contains a corresponding white bunny head screw-on lid and one bent ear and one straight ear. The cups can be identified by imprints on the bottom: “TARGET 200020683″ for pink and “TARGET 200020884″ for the blue.
Parents should immediately stop using the recalled sippy cups and return them to any Target store for a full refund.
