A popular Starbucks bottled coffee drink was recalled after glass was found in some of the bottles, according to the US Food and Drug Administration.
PepsiCo has voluntarily recalled more than 25,000 cases of the bottled vanilla frappuccino drink sold at retail stores nationwide, the FDA said in a release, because the drinks may contain a “foreign object (glass).”
Each carton contains 12 of the 13.7-ounce drinks, with over 300,000 bottles recalled in total.
The products have UPC number 0 12000-81331 3. Expiration dates are March 8th, May 29th, June 4th and 10th.
The ongoing recall of the vanilla frappuccino drink was first initiated on Jan. 28.
The FDA referred to this as a Class II recall, meaning “a situation where use of or exposure to an infringing product may result in temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences, or where the likelihood of serious adverse health consequences is low.”
PepsiCo Inc., maker of the vanilla frappuccino drink, faced a similar situation last September when it recalled its vanilla espresso triple shot energy coffee over possible metal fragment contamination.
