Grand Rapids' consumers of Bunny Sippy Cups sold exclusively at Target stores in Grand Rapids and nationwide are alerted to a voluntary recall announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, CPC.
Approximately 264,000 Target Home Bunny Sippy Cups are being recalled because the ear on the sippy cup can poke a child in the eye area while using the cup for drinking, posing an injury hazard.
Target has received six reports of incidents where the plastic ear poked children during routine use of the product. Cuts and bruises were reported in three of these incidents.
The recall involves two styles of Target Home Bunny Sippy Cups. The cups come with handles on both sides in pink and blue, female and male. Each contains a corresponding white bunny head screw-on lid and one bent ear and one straight ear. The cups can be identified by imprints on the bottom: “TARGET 200020683” for the pink and “TARGET 200020884” for the blue.
The recalled product was sold at Target stores from February 2012 through April 5, 2012, for $3.
Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the product and return them to any Target store for a full refund. For more information, please call Target at 800-440-0680 or visit their website.
