RECALL – Green Sprouts Toddler’s Stainless Steel Bottles and Cups Due to Lead Poisoning Hazard

The CPSC along with Green Sprouts Inc., of Asheville, North Carolina has announced the voluntary recall of about 10,500 Green Sprouts Stainless Steel Straw Bottles, Sippy Cups and Sip & Straw Cups because the bottom base can break off, exposing a solder dot that contains lead, posing a lead poisoning hazard to the child. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children, and can cause adverse health effects.

The firm has received seven reports of incidents of the bottles’ base breaking off exposing the solder dot. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves 6 oz and 8 oz Green Sprouts Stainless Steel cups and bottles with tracking numbers 29218V06985, 35719V06985, and 33020V06985, which can be found on the bottom of the base. The recalled double-walled stainless steel bottles were sold in aqua, pink, green, and navy colors with one of three closure options: (1) a silicone sippy spout with a colored plastic lid, collar and handle (2) a silicone sippy spout and a straw spout with colored plastic lid, collar and handle, or (3) a silicone straw with plastic screw-on flip cap. The tracking number is printed on the bottom base. The bottles were sold in one of two sizes as indicated:
