Mold can develop on the removable valve inside the Tommee Tippee Sippee cups when it remains wet or moist and is not frequently cleaned, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Mayborn USA has received 3,066 reports of mold in the valve, including 68 reports of children experiencing diarrhea, vomiting or other symptoms associated with drinking from a cup with mold in the valve.
