Starbucks Recalls More Than 300,000 Vanilla Frappuccino Drinks
Tons of bottles of Starbucks Frappuccino are being recalled over concerns that the chilled coffee drinks may contain glass as per reports from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
PepsiCo, which as you should already know works with Starbucks on its bottled products, issued a voluntary recall for 25,200 cases, each of them with 12 bottles of vanilla Starbucks Frappuccino drinks, as per a notice posted in late January. The reason however for the recall is listed as “foreign object (glass).”
Information on the Recalled Drinks
The drinks were reportedly sold at retail stores nationwide with expiration dates of “MAR 08 23, MAY 29 23, JUN 04 23, JUN 10, 23,” according to the notice by the food and drug administration (FDA).
Both Starbucks and PepsiCo did not immediately respond to requests for additional information on the issue.
The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Reaction to the Issue
The food and drug administration (FDA) lists the recall as Class II, which according to its website says refers to “products that have a lower chance of causing major injuries or death, but where there is still the possibility of serious enough adverse events to have irreversible consequences.”
