Tommee Tippee baby cups withdrawn over child illness fears

Tommee Tippee is recalling items from its Sippee Cup range following reports of children falling ill after drinking from them.

The recall is necessary due to a risk of mould gathering in the cups’ valve, which is said to have led to diarrhoea and vomiting. The mould cannot be seen while cleaning the cups.

As many as 70 children are reported to have become ill so far, with the manufacturer recalling more than three million items in the USA.

UK customers have been advised to stop using the cups for now and wait for a version with a two-piece valve which the company claims will be easier to clean.
