More than three million spill-proof Tommee Tippee Sippee Cups are being recalled due to mold concerns.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said mold can develop on the removable, one-piece, white valve inside the cups if it remains wet and infrequently cleaned.

The cups were manufactured by Mayborn USA.

The recall involves five types of the cups.

  • First Sips Transition cup
  • Trainer Sippee cup
  • Sippee cup (including Cute Quips)
  • Sportee bottle
  • Insulated Swiggle/Sippee tumblers

The CPSC said the plastic drinking cups have spill-proof easy-grip sides with detachable handles and were sold in clear and colored lids. They also came in a variety of colors and character prints.

The cups have a 7 to 10 ounce capacity and were sold for ages 4 to 12 months.

They were sold at BuyBuy Baby, CVS, Giant, Kohl’s, Marco Baby, Marshalls, Meijer, Sam’s Club, Ross Stores, Target, Bealls Outlet, Walgreens and Wal-Mart and other stores nationwide. They were also available on Amazon.com, BabyHaven.com and Diapers.com.

They were on store shelves Dec. 2014 through May 2016 for between $4 and $7.

Only the cups with the removable valve are involved with the recall.

Mayborn USA said it received more than 3,000 cases of mold in the removable valve, including 68 reports of children experiencing diarrhea, vomiting or other symptoms associated with ingesting mold.

Consumers were advised to stop using the cups and contact Mayborn for a replacement cup.
