Earlier this month, the company Tommy Tippee issued a recall on their spill proof cups, and is offering free replacements as they have found that mold has accumulated in hard to clean places and valves where it may grow to be potentially dangerous.
Television program Good Morning America performed an experiment to see just how true this statement was. They had 50 viewers send in items that their children either drank out of or used in the tub, and they decided to test these products to see just how dirty they really were. Whether they were rubber, foam, or plastics, the results of these tests seems to all say the same thing: our children’s items are not as clean as we think they are.
The results found that 100% of the submitted items had mold in them from the water contamination, and the rubber items seemed to be the worst. More than 25% of the sippy cups grew fecal bacteria, which was perhaps the most alarming of all of the results. The show sat down with a few of the parents who submitted their children’s items, swearing that they cleaned them entirely. Both parties were shocked to hear just how much bacteria was actually on their items.
