Parents are being warned about a recall involving a popular children’s Easter sipper cup.

The Trolls Plastic Sipper Cup with milk chocolate eggs inside has been pulled from shelves in Kmart and Target over fears the plastic cap on the straw may separate from its plastic tether.

“If the cap and the tether separate it may pose a choking hazard to small children,” a recall notice posted on the Australian Competition and Consumer commission website reads.

The recalled cups were sold at Kmart and Target stores nationwide from February 2017 to 30th March 2017.

Cups from other retailers or with different characters are unaffected.

Parents have been urged to stop using the recalled cups immediately and to return it to the retailer where it was purchased for a full refund.

  • I remember my kids having these years ago, or something similar. I removed the doubt but then, disheartening to see they’re still being made

  • Thanks for this, it’s the only place I ever hear about these recalls! Luckily I had decided not to get this for my niece.

  • Glad it got recalled when it’s not safe. It shouldn’t be necessary indeed though. Improvement of checks and controles before a product goes on the market would be better then all these recalls.

  • I know I haven’t bought any but I will warn my relatives and friends and ask them to pass the information on.

  • Why are these products not thoroughly checked before being put on shelves for sale?

  • Yet another recall …I really wish there were more inspections and restrictions on children’s items.


    • I agree – surely there are inspections before distribution?
