Health Canada has recently announced a recall of CUPKIN brand Double-Walled Stainless Steel Children’s Cups after detecting lead in the bottom seal. Products designed for children containing lead are of particular concern due to the potential health risks associated with lead exposure.
Detailed Product Information:
The recall specifically targets CUPKIN’s 8 oz and 12 oz stainless steel children’s cups. These cups are:
- Sold in pairs.

Lead, a substance known for its toxicity, has been found in the bottom seal of these cups. Lead exposure, especially in children, can lead to health issues ranging from anemia and vomiting to more severe conditions. As of September 11, 2023, there have been no reported incidents or injuries in Canada related to this product.
Health Canada has provided the following guidelines for consumers:
