More than 300,000 bottles of Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino chilled coffee drinks have been recalled because of possible glass content in the drink.
PepsiCo, which sells Starbucks-branded ready-to-drink coffee beverages, has voluntarily issued the recall of 25,200 cases (each containing 12 bottles), according to the Food and Drug Administration’s website. The reason for the recall is a foreign object (glass), according to the FDA website.
The drinks were sold nationwide in late January, according to the recall.
PepsiCo initiated the recall on behalf of the North American Coffee Partnership, the joint venture formed with Starbucks in 1994. In a statement, the organization said the products not sold at Starbucks locations will be removed from other retail locations.
