The bottom exterior of the 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 to children.
This recall involves the 8 oz models of LAOION children’s cups. The insulated, stainless steel cups were sold in packs of four different colored cups – lilac, green, salmon, and blue – with matching silicone straws, spill-proof lids and one straw brush. "LAOION" is printed on the front bottom of the cups.
Consumers should immediately take the cups away from children, stop using them and contact LAOION for a full refund. LAOION and Amazon are contacting all known purchasers directly.

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.
