Green Sprouts Recall 2022

Recall Information

Green Sprouts Company recalled 10,500 units of stainless steel straw bottles, sippy cups, and sip & straw cups over lead poisoning risks. (1)

Thankfully, while these incidents reported exposure of the solder dot, no injuries relating to this Green Sprouts recall has been reported.

Are These Recalled Sippy Cups Still Safe To Use?

It’s important to check the tracking number at the bottles’ base to ensure that you keep these recalled products away from your children.

Although the recalled sippy cups you have at home might look intact, there’s no telling when a part of the product might break off with normal use, increasing your child’s risk of lead poisoning.

The CPSC also reminds us that federal regulations prohibit the donation or resale of any products involved in mandatory or voluntary recalls. (1)
