A line of children's tumblers is being recalled due to an ingestion hazard.

Ignite USA is voluntarily recalling its Bueno by Contigo Kids Straw Tumblers. If a child chews on the drinking straw, small pieces can break off into the child's mouth, posing a risk of ingestion or aspiration. Ignite is recalling about 130,000 tumblers.

This recall includes eight different styles of plastic drinking tumblers, sold with a lid and a straw. Some of the straws have a plastic mold in the shape of fangs, lips, a mustache or a zipper affixed to the top. The tumblers are branded Bueno by Contigo on the retail packaging and Bueno on the lid of the cup. All cups have the number 036201 engraved on the bottom.

For a full list of model numbers and sizes, see the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) release. Model numbers are printed on a label affixed to the bottom of the cup. Straw tumblers with the letter B engraved on the underside of the lid beneath the model number are not included in this recall.

Consumers could purchase these tumblers at Meijer and Target retail stores nationwide from May 2015 through September 2015 for about $6.

No incidents or injuries have been reported in connection with this defect.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled tumblers from children and contact Ignite for a full refund.
