Next Step sippy/tumbler cups are being recalled. The impact of being dropped or smacked can cause the cup to break into pieces which can result in sharp or jagged edges that can pose a hazard to small children.
Artcraft and Foremost Inc. has received 90 reports of the cups breaking into pieces and/or the handles breaking off, resulting in six reports of minor injuries including cuts to the fingers.
The recall involves plastic sippy/tumbler cups that bear the “Next Step” logo. The cups were distributed by Mead Johnson Nutritionals as a promotional giveaway to physicians and consumers nationwide via direct mail from September 2006 to October 2006.
Consumers should take the cups away from children and discard them immediately. Consumers can contact Mead Johnson Nutritionals for information on how to receive a $10 coupon toward the purchase of Next Step LIPIL baby formula.
