    I was relieved to read that the reason for the recall of the Starbuck’s cups didn’t have anything to do with lead! CJ started drinking out of a cup and we use the turtle and ladybug cups w/o the lids. She’s dropped them on our tile floor and the faces haven’t come off, and even if they did, she’s strapped into her booster seat. Whew!
