A leading company has recalled three million baby cups after they received numerous complaints from parents that they are making children ill in the UK and the US.
Tommee Tippee has recalled their cups after numerous parents complained that mould accumulates in the valve of the cups.
According to reports, over 70 children have become seriously ill after using the cups. The company said that a significant amount of mould can build up in the hart of the valve, causing bacteria to accumulate.
Children have experienced symptoms such as diarrhoea and vomiting as a result of the mould.
“We’d like to assure you that child health and wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do, and we’re taking the current concerns around our Sippee cups very seriously,” said Tommee Tippee.
“We sell millions of Sippee cups globally but we know from recent social media posts, that some people have had problems cleaning the valve.
“For this we sincerely apologise and we are actively following up on any concerns raised.”
The company recalled several of their cups including the First Sips Transition cup, Trainer Suppee cup, Sippee cup (including Cute Quips), Sportee bottle and Insulated Swiggle/Sippee tumblers.
