Outraged parents across the web are freaking out over a popular brand of children’s sippy cups – and for good reason.
Earlier this month two moms from Montreal shared some unnerving photos of Tommee Tippee sippy cups on Facebook, the pair shared similar posts warning other parents of the hidden health risk of their children’s sippy cups.
Marie-Pier L’Hostie wrote: ‘My friend … wondered why his son was always sick. He broke the anti-spill top of his “Tommee Tippee” bottle and discovered mold inside the mouthpiece.
These photos show mold growing hidden within the sippy cups – despite regular cleaning!
Unsurprisingly, parents across the internet have joined in, proving that these are not isolated incidents. If it is in fact a design error the manufacturers could be at fault – as the mold poses a serious safety hazard.
Do you have any tommee tippee products? Were you one of the many parents to find mold?
UPDATE: Tommee Tippee has officially announced that they are releasing a new cup with a piece that’s ‘easier to clean’.
