Uh oh, Starbucks fans! The beloved coffee chain has issued a recall on its Vanilla Frappuccinos, after a warning from the drink’s distributor that they may contain glass. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has requested that over 300,000 bottles of the drink be returned to prevent any potential harm to consumers.
According to the FDA, the recall applies to the Vanilla Frappuccino cases, which were sold across various retail chains in the US, including Walmart, Amazon, and Target. The affected bottles have expiration dates of 8 March, 29 May, 4 June, and 10 June 2023.
The Starbucks recall has been classified as class two, which means that the affected product “may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences or where the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote”. However, there have been no reports of injuries or illnesses related to the affected product at this time.
Starbucks has yet to comment on the recall but has assured customers that the removal of the affected products from the marketplace is underway.
If you have purchased any Vanilla Frappuccinos with the affected expiration dates, it is recommended that you return them to the store where you purchased them for a refund or dispose of them immediately.
