About 84,000 Playskool sippy cups are being recalled because children can chew through the plastic spouts, presenting a choking hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
Rhode Island-based CVS/pharmacy imported the cups, the CPSC said Thursday.
The company has received 36 reports of toddlers chewing the spout, including one choking incident. No injuries have been reported.
The recall affects the eight-ounce NoSpill sippy cup. The product packaging is marked with the serial number 382814.
The cups were sold at CVS stores in the U.S. from September 2006 through April 2007 for about $5 US each.
Consumers should take the cups away from children and return them to any CVS store for refunds.
