PandaEar recalls stainless steel children’s cups


aEar of Lake Dallas, Texas, is recalling about 1,600 PandaEar stainless steel toddler cups.

The bottom exterior of the recalled stainless-steel cups contains an accessible solder bead with levels of lead that exceed the federal lead content ban.

Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects.

In addition, the lid can crack and break during use producing sharp edges and small parts, posing choking and laceration hazards.

No incidents or injuries are reported.

This recall involves the 8-oz. models of PandaEar Stainless Steel Toddler Cups sold in sets of two, in pink and gray or blue and gray, with matching silicone straws. There are no exterior markings on the cups.

The cups. Manufactured in China, were sold online at from May through August 2023 for about $12.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled cups away from children, stop using them and contact PandaEar for a full refund. PandaEar and Amazon are contacting all known purchasers.
