130,000 kids tumblers recalled due to risk of ingestion

U.S. (WFLA) — Ignite has recalled about 130,000 kids “Bueno by Contigo” straw tumblers. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says if a child chews on the drinking straw, small pieces can break off into the child’s mouth, posing a risk of ingestion or aspiration of the small part.

This recall includes eight different styles of plastic drinking tumblers that sold with a lid and a straw. Some of the straws have a plastic mold in the shape of fangs, lips, a mustache or a zipper affixed to the top.

The tumblers were sold at Meijer and Target retail stores nationwide from May 2015 through September 2015 for about $6.

The tumblers are branded “Bueno by Contigo” on the retail packaging and “Bueno” on the lid of the cup. All cups have the number “036201” engraved on the bottom.
