Liquids in the cup were not exposed to lead due to the double walled construction, but testing revealed that the cups may pose an exposure to lead if the cup bottoms are mistreated, according to the company, which is encouraging customers who purchased the cups between 2020 and Feb. 19 to immediately stop using them.

Both sizes of the recalled cups were sold in 12 different color combinations including a matching straw: blue and green; pink and purple, blue and gray; peach and teal; black and white; coral and yellow; green and pink; brown and peach; cobalt and mint; rust and salmon; aqua and periwinkle; and polignac and putpourri.
