Ebay "Moonflower" cup?
Almost looks legit if you read the description.

Is this the one that you're talking about?
I went to go look after I saw this post. (I LOVE eBay. :3 )

http://www.ebay.com/itm/121422810926

This seller also sells iCare cups though...? From my experience on eBay, whenever they include the *US seller!* they're usually selling chinese items. Also this cup is $14 bucks, I haven't seen any that cheap other than the chinese cups on eBay. 3 red flags , IMO...I am by no means saying this isn't a good cup or anything, I just wanted to point that out. Plus I'm not a cup expert. Lol

Sorry for second comment!

I checked and the seller is auctioning an iCare cup for $ 7.99 (ends Sunday)
And sold an iCare cup for $15.99 on August 28, 2014.

I saved the listings as a photo just in case the seller removes their older listings. eBay will generally show you old listing up to a month or two. Theirs only go back 8/19/2014..

Dug deeper and if you look at their feedback you can see that the seller has sold at least 19 iCare cups. When I click on the feedback it takes me to the old listing. Took a pic of this too...

Yet another bulk cup. If you Google WHOLESALE MENSTRUAL CUPS, you'll get half a dozen Far Eastern distributors who sell them by the case and other large quantities. You'll recognize its picture under many names and several colors. There are even some molding companies that will imprint a custom name/logo. Otherwise, just change the packaging and call it whatever you want. The description is copied and pasted -- a very typical description.

I tried to look into this a few years ago and hit a dead end: Does anyone know what the punishment would be if someone were to be caught selling non-FDA cups? I was not able to find a definitive answer.

The closest I got came from a lawyer's site and it said, "If you have unwittingly sold non-FDA approved items and are audited, do not meet with government representatives without an attorney or before meeting with experienced legal counsel. The cases that we have seen result in criminal charges were brought, in large part, because the individuals confessed to buying and selling non-FDA approved items and did not have legal counsel." But of course they made the consequences sound dire. They're trying to sell their services. So take that with as large a grain of salt (salt lick) as you deem necessary.

Edited for wording.
