Green Sprouts has voluntarily recalled their stainless steel straw bottles, sippy cups and straw cups that were sold at Whole Foods, Buy Buy Baby, Amazon and Bed Bath & Beyond, due to a lead poisoning hazard.

Stainless steel bottles and cups were recalled by Green Sprouts Inc. of Asheville, North Carolina, because of a lead poisoning hazard, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The bottom of the recalled bottles can break off, which would expose a solder dot that contains lead.

Exposure of the solder dot poses a lead poisoning hazard to children. Lead is toxic if ingested and can cause adverse health effects.

The recall involves six and eight-ounce bottles that were sold in aqua, pink, green, and navy colors.
