Bottled Vanilla Frappuccino Recalled

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a recall of over 25,000 cases of Starbucks' bottled vanilla Frappuccinos due to concerns that they may contain glass objects. The convenience of having store-bought iced coffee drinks has made them very popular, with Starbucks products lining shelves in grocery stores and 7-Elevens across the country since 1996.

Metal Pieces In Bottles

However, this convenience has come at a price, as bottled drinks have been the subject of several recalls. In March 2022, a recall was issued for 250,000 Doubleshot Espresso cases, while in August of the same year, the FDA recalled Starbucks' Vanilla Espresso Triple Shot cans due to metal fragments. This recent recall is the result of foreign product contamination.

Nationwide Recall

The nationwide recall affects drinks with an expiration date as late as June 10, 2023, so it's possible that some contaminated drinks have already been purchased but not consumed yet. As a result, it's crucial to dispose of or return any affected products to their place of purchase. While the convenience of bottled coffee drinks is undeniable, the risk of swallowing a piece of glass is not worth taking. Fans of the vanilla-based coffee should consider making their own brew at home until the recall is resolved.
