Starbucks recalls metal-contaminated coffee bottles


If you have bottled Starbucks drinks in your fridge, you’ll want to pay attention to this reminder before you open one.

More than 200 cases of bottled Starbucks beverages are being recalled in seven states because they may be contaminated with metal fragments.

The recall involves Starbucks Vanilla Espresso Triple Shot beverages packaged in 15-ounce bottles, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

Pepsico Inc, which manufactures and distributes the products, initiated the recall Aug. 15 after determining the drinks may contain metal fragments.

The FDA did not mention how the beverages potentially became contaminated or how the problem was discovered.

The recalled beverages were distributed to retail stores in the following states: Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Oklahoma and Texas. The stores that sold the products were not identified.

No other details, including CUP numbers or expiration dates, were provided. The FDA published the recall in an application report on September 8; it did not announce the recall in a press release.

The status of the recall is in progress, which means that it could possibly grow in scale. Officials did not mention any reports of injuries or adverse reactions related to the recalled products.

Anyone who owns a recalled product should discard it or return it to the place of purchase for a refund.
