Consumers should immediately take the recalled drinking cups away from children, stop using them, and contact Lovevery for a free replacement cup. Consumers will receive a free replacement cup after registering on the firm’s website, uploading a photo of their defaced cup with “X Recalled X” written inside of the cup with a permanent marker and affirming to Lovevery that the cup will be recycled according to local guidelines or disposed of in the trash. Lovevery is contacting all known purchasers directly.
Lovevery has received 70 reports of the handle of the drinking cup becoming partially or completely detached including two incidents where a child had the cup handle in their mouth. No choking injuries have been reported.

This recall was conducted, voluntarily by the company, under CPSC’s Fast Track Recall process. Fast Track recalls are initiated by firms, who commit to work with CPSC to quickly announce the recall and remedy to protect consumers.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
