Starbucks Recalls 2.5 Million Straws In Fears Of Further Injuries
Starbucks has issued a recall on its stainless steel beverage straws after reports keep pouring in of mouth injuries.
The recall is aimed at the reusable stainless steel, Cold-to-Go drinking straws for Grande and Venti sizes.
“Starbucks has received three reports in the US and one in Canada of mouth lacerations to young children while drinking,” the company said in its recall announcement. “Consumers should not allow children to handle or use the stainless steel straws.”
The straw and items that come with the straw have all been taken off of Starbucks’ online store. Starbucks sold about 2.5 million units of the straws in the US, and an additional 301,000 in Canada.
