Health Canada has issued a recall for a stainless steel children's cup after discovering the product may contain excess amounts of lead.
The recall involves 8 oz (236.6 ml) and 12 oz (354.9 ml) Cupkin double-walled stainless steel children's cups sold in pairs in 12 different colour combinations with a matching coloured straw.
Health Canada says the recalled product may contain excess amounts of lead at the bottom seal, posing an exposure risk.
According to Health Canada, lead is highly toxic, especially to children, and can lead to serious health effects, including anemia, vomiting, diarrhea, and in extreme cases, death.
As of September 11, no incidents or injuries have been reported in Canada.
The cups were manufactured in China and sold in Canada from January 2018 to March 2023.
Anyone with the affected product is encouraged to stop using it immediately and contact Cupkin for a full refund.
