Children’s tumbler recall announced due to ingestion hazard

Recall Tumblers 335x210 Childrens tumbler recall announced due to ingestion hazardIgnite USA and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have announced a tumbler recall encompassing about 130,000 Bueno by Contigo Kids Straw Tumblers. The children’s tumbler straw may break off into tiny pieces depending on whether the child chews on it. If so, the plastic pieces may become lodged in the child’s throat, posing an ingestion or aspiration hazard.

The tumbler recall features eight differently styled tumblers featuring a plastic lid and straw. All of the recalled tumblers have “Bueno by Contigo” printed on the retail packaging, as well as “Bueno” on top of the cup’s lid. The bottom of the recalled tumblers should have the number “036201” printed on it. To find the tumbler’s model number, check for a label printed on the bottom of the cup. Any straw tumbler with the letter “B” engraved beneath the cup’s lid is not under recall.
