Green Sprouts Sippy Cup Recall: What’s the Problem?

The Green Sprouts recall involves around 10,500 stainless-steel Sippy Cups, Straw Bottles, and Sip & Straw Cups sold nationwide from January 2020 through September 2022.

According to a recall notice posted to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) on November 23rd, the products’ bottom base can break off, exposing a solder dot that contains lead. Lead is toxic if ingested by young kids, resulting in severe and long-term adverse health effects.

This recall involves 6-ounce and 8-ounce 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 and cups were available in aqua, pink, green, and navy colors with one of three closure options:

  • A silicone sippy spout with a colored plastic lid, collar, and handle.
  • A silicone sippy spout and a straw spout with a colored plastic lid, collar, and handle
  • A silicone straw with a plastic screw-on flip cap.

The recalled Green Sprouts cups and bottles were manufactured in China. They cost between $14 and $19 and could be purchased at Bed Bath & Beyond and Whole Foods stores nationwide, as well as,, and

The CPSC urged parents and caregivers to immediately take the recalled stainless-steel bottles and cups away from children and discard them.

Lead and Kids: No Amount is Safe.

No amount of lead is safe for young children.

But the fact is, lead is often found in the paint, metal, and plastic parts used to manufacture toys, play jewelry, and other children’s products, particularly those made in other countries. Lead may also be present in antique toys and collectibles, including domestically manufactured items.

In 2008, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) became law. Among other things, it required that all toys and infant products sold in the United States be tested to ensure they don’t exceed mandatory lead standards before being sold. Yet every year, the CPSC typically announces multiple recalls for lead-tainted toys and other products intended for use by children.

Lead usually builds up in the body over time, and lead poisoning is typically not caused by a single high exposure. However, kids are four to five times more likely to absorb lead than adults. Over time, even low-level lead exposure can lead to learning and behavior problems, including:

  • Damage to the brain and nervous system
  • Slowed growth and development
  • Learning and behavior problems
  • Hearing and speech problems

If you think your son or daughter might have put a lead-containing object in their mouth, take it away from them immediately and contact your child’s healthcare provider. They can help you decide whether a blood test for lead is needed and recommend appropriate follow-up actions if your child has been exposed.

How to Protect Your Kids from Lead Exposure

Because babies and toddlers tend to put their hands, toys, or other objects into their mouths, it’s crucial to ensure they don’t have access to any items that might contain lead. To ensure your kids stay safe from other potential sources of lead, you should also take the following precautions:

  • Keep children away from peeling paint and broken plaster, and don’t let them near any remodeling or renovation work.
  • Don’t allow kids to play in soil, especially around the foundations of older buildings and near roadways. Use a sandbox instead.
  • People who work in construction, plumbing, painting, auto repair, and certain other jobs can be exposed to lead. They must wash and change clothes before holding a baby or young child. Their work clothes should also be laundered separately.
  • Lead-glazed ceramic pottery should not be used to eat, serve from, or store food. Use glass or plastic.
  • Frequently wash toys in soap and water, especially infant teething toys.
  • Ensure children wash their hands after play, before meals, and before bed to rinse off any lead dust or dirt.
  • Frequently wash toys in soap and water, especially infant teething toys.
  • Use cold water – not hot – for infant formula or cooking. Let the cold-water tap run for at least a minute to flush lead picked up from old pipes.
  • If you open windows in warm weather, wash the sills and window wells any time you see dust, but at least once a month.
  • Be aware of any potential lead dangers while working on your hobbies.
  • If you’re worried about lead paint in your home or apartment, contact your local health department for assistance.
