Green Sprouts, a self-described “natural parenting” brand, has made headlines after voluntarily recalling around 10,500 of its sippy cups and bottles. Here’s what you need to know.

Why are Green Sprouts’ sippy cups and bottles being recalled?

In a notice issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the organization cites the potential for toxic lead exposure as the reason behind the recall.

According to Green Sprouts, despite thorough safety testing, the brand was recently made aware of seven incidents in which bottles or cups were broken, exposing a solder dot that contains lead.

The solder dot typically used to bind together the inner and outer layers of the cups and bottles was not examined during safety testing as it was not typically accessible during normal use.

The CPSC says parents should take this potential exposure to lead very seriously. “Lead is toxic if ingested by children and can cause adverse health effects,” the notice states. Although no injury or illness reports have been filed, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reminds parents that lead exposure can seriously damage the brain and nervous system of children leading to speech, behavior and development issues.

How do I know if my product is affected by the recall?

The recall includes Green Sprouts’ double-walled sippy cups and bottles with tracking numbers 29218V06985, 35719V06985, and 33020V06985. The tracking numbers can be found at the bottom of the product. The bottles and cups were sold in Whole Foods and Buybuy Baby stores from January 2020 through September 2022. They were sold online at,, and

What should I do if my product is recalled?

The CPSC advises parents to stop using and throw away affected products immediately. Green Sprouts has committed to contacting all known purchasers directly and will be issuing refunds to those with impacted products.
