CHICAGO, IL – Soojimus, a children’s cup manufacturer, is recalling approximately 346,000 units of CUPKIN Double-Walled Stainless Steel Children’s Cups due to a violation of the federal lead content ban.
The cups, sold on Amazon and Cupkin.com, were found to contain lead levels exceeding the allowable limit, posing severe health risks to young children.
Lead is a toxic substance, especially hazardous when ingested by young children, and can lead to adverse health effects. Soojimus is working closely with Amazon to directly contact known purchasers and facilitate the recall process. The recall includes 8 oz. and 12 oz. models of CUPKIN Stainless Steel Children’s Cups, sold in pairs, with 12 different color combinations, each featuring a matching straw. Affected colors include blue and green, pink and purple, and brown and peach. The “Cupkin” label on the front bottom of the cups identifies the recalled items.
As of now, no incidents or injuries have been reported. However, consumers should immediately stop using these cups and keep them away from children. Soojimus urges customers to contact them for a full refund to ensure the safety of their little ones.
These cups were available online at Amazon.com and Cupkin.com from January 2018 through March 2023, priced at approximately $20.
