Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Novelty Beverage Cups are subject to this recall:

  • Novelty Beverage Cups, printed beverage cups that come complete with a lid and a straw. There is a flashing light mechanism in each lid and the Cups were sold in combination packages under model number JP-17033B-01. The Cups were made available from Event Cinemas, Greater Union Cinemas and Birch Carroll & Coyle Cinemas

Please consult the photograph above for details of the Cups’ design and retail presentation.

According to the ACCC, the battery cover in the lid of the recalled Beverage Cup can be opened without the use of a tool or two simultaneous independent movements of the battery compartment lid. This defect could allow infants or small children to access the small “button” batteries inside the unit. If young children do, in fact, gain access to the button batteries and ingest them, they may suffer internal burn injuries, which can result in serious illness and even death. In addition, the batteries may pose a choking hazard to young children.

In addition, if plastic or metal parts are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Novelty Beverage Cups, please do not use them. Instead, safely dispose of the blue plastic lid and batteries in accordance with local hazardous waste regulations. Please retain the Cup and complete the recall form. You will then receive an e-voucher to redeem a small popcorn and small drink in exchange for returning the Inside Out Souvenir Beverage Cup.
