Toddler sippy bottles and cups sold nationwide pose lead-poisoning risk

Green Sprouts is recalling thousands of stainless steel bottles and sippy cups sold nationwide because the base of the products can break off, posing a lead-poisoning risk to children.

The Asheville, North Carolina, company has received seven reports of the bottles’ base breaking off, exposing a solder dot containing lead, which is toxic if ingested by young children, according to the recall notice posted on Friday by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. No injuries were reported.

The recall comes on the heels of a recently report by U.S. PIRG that found a high number of recalled products still on the market, “including children’s products recalled for lead — a toxic substance banned since the 1970s,” Dev Gowda, assistant director of Kids in Danger, stated in a release earlier this month.

No level of lead is considered safe in children, with even low levels in blood hurting a child’s ability to learn, pay attention and do well in school, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“As we approach the redesign of these products, whose benefits for keeping drinks cold safely have made them a popular choice for parents, we will ensure that lead is not used as a soldering material,” Green Sprouts stated in a separate release. 

The company encouraged customers to continue using the recalled product’s plant-plastic and silicone lid and spout with other Green Sprouts cups and bottles, while discarding the stainless-steel components by putting them in the trash.
