More than 3 million sippy cups made by Mayborn USA Inc. have been recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. 

The company said it has received more than 3,000 reports of mold in the sippy cups.
 
A total of 68 children experienced diarrhea, vomiting and other symptoms associated with drinking from a cup with mold in the valve, the recall notice said. 

The items being recalled are the First Sips Transition cup, the Trainer Sippee cup, Sippee cup (including Cute Quips), Sportee bottle and Insulated Swiggle/Sippee tumblers. 

The recall involves only Tommee Tippee Sippee cups with a white one-piece removable valve. 

The products were sold for children ages 4 to 12 months and retailed for $4 to $7. 

The sippy cups were sold nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Babyhaven.com and Diapers.com from December 2014 to May 2016. 

Consumers are encouraged to stop suing the sippy cups and contact Mayborn USA Inc. to receive a free replacement cup.
