Letter from Green Sprouts Sippy Cup Attorneys

I have been out of town (in California) for the past several days.  My husband received this via FedEx today (Saturday, 2/25/2017).  Please click on the image to see the letter full size.  I will be writing more about this shortly, however I want to say that I stand by my findings and I will not be bullied.  Here’s my original letter to the company.

If you would like to support my advocacy work (and help me cover costs including potential attorneys fees necessary for discovering [via XRF testing] and reporting on items like this [consumer goods intended for children that test positive for lead]) please consider making a contribution to my GoFundMe. Thank you so much! [My current short-term goal is $9,500 by March 3, 2017.]

As always, I am happy to answer any questions.

    Did they explain to you why they think your info is false or misleading? (That would probably be a more effective way to ask you to remove it…)

      Nope… they didn’t say. Nothing I have stated is false or misleading… so… there’s that! 🙂

    Dear Tamara,
    Thank you for everything you do and please keep doing what you are doing! Please know that your work is helping so many parents make safer choices every day and saving so many children!
    I used to think that iplay was concerned about the safety of our children and used to love their products. This letter from their attorney is the reason I will not be buying another iplay product in the future. In fact, it makes me question what else they know about the (un)safety of their products and are hiding from the consumers! If they had taken a constructive approach instead, it would have been a completely different story.
    On the other hand, Instapot has just earned another customer. I was in the market for a similar cooker and will take a closer look at their products.
    Thank you Tamara, this was another real eye-opener!
