“If it had been in his hands I really don’t even want to imagine what would have happened. If it choked me up that bad and burnt me, it could have taken a limb off of a child that little,” she said.
Now Becirovic is calling for a recall of the cup.
An attorney for Nnuby’s parent company said they don’t believe an explosion could have happened if the cup was being used properly.MORE NEWS: Summer Break Ends Early For Some Dallas ISD Schools
