More than 3 million Tommee Tippee Sippee Cups recalled

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — More than three million Tommee Tippee Sippee Cups are being recalled due to mold.

The CPSC says mold can develop on the removable, one-piece, white valve inside the spill-proof cups when it remains wet/moist or is infrequently cleaned.

The recall comes after the manufacturer, Mayborn USA, received more than 3,000 reports of mold forming in the cups. In 68 cases, that mold caused children to become sick with symtoms of diarrhea, vomiting and other symptoms associated with drinking mold.

Consumers are being told to immediately stop using the recalled Sippee cups.
