A Starbucks drink was recalled because it might have had metal pieces in it. If you rely on Starbucks beverages to keep you going through the day, you may want to check to see if any of the recently recalled products are hiding in your fridge.
Because of possible metal contamination, PepsiCo is voluntarily recalling its Starbucks Vanilla Espresso Triple Shot. Seven states will be affected by the recall. More than 200 15-ounce cases are impacted by the recall. Vanilla Espresso Triple Shot bottles come in a case of 12 throughout the states of Illinois, Indiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Florida, and Arizona.
It is stated that the recalled product has “a burst of caffeine from Starbucks coffee with a hint of French vanilla taste and a touch of cream.” The popular drink tastes great, either straight up or over ice.
Products with the defect were sold in retailers in seven states: Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Oklahoma, and Texas.
The recall began on August 15 and was announced on the FDA’s website on September 8. The FDA also shared the news that numerous factors can lead to metal contamination in foods. Both the ground and the air can be mined for the metal. The processing of manufactured goods also provides an opportunity for metal contamination. The product was contaminated, supposedly, during production at Starbucks.
The popular coffee shop has dealt with product recalls before. Their chicken, maple butter, and egg sandwich was taken off the menu in the summer because it did not fulfill quality standards.
Despite pulling the sandwich from shelves, they denied customers became sick after eating it.
Over the past few months, there has been a series of recalls due to metal contamination. In light of metal contamination fears, D. F. Stauffer Biscuit Co., Inc. voluntarily recalled 44-ounce canisters of Market Pantry White Fudge Animal Cookies sold at Target locations last week.
Due to the possible presence of small metal bits, Mars Wrigley voluntarily recalled numerous confectionery flavors in May. Several kinds of Minute Maid juice were recalled in 2017 due to possible metal hardware.
In addition to looking for the recalled beverage, you may want to check for the ground beef that can be found in some HelloFresh kits. Meal kits containing ground beef sold between July 2 and July 21 were the subject of a public health notice issued by the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
Although Starbucks stores aren’t directly involved in the recall of Vanilla Espresso Triple Shot beverages, the company did pull one menu item from stores over the summer. Due to not meeting quality standards, the chicken, maple butter, and egg sandwich was taken off the menu. At the time, Starbucks refuted several social media posts that claimed customers’ stomachs turned after eating the sandwich.
