PepsiCo Inc. has announced a recall of its Starbucks Vanilla Espresso Triple Shot beverage due to potential contamination.

These canned drinks are being pulled from retailers in seven states due to the potential presence of metal fragments in the cans. The recalled drinks were distributed in Arkansas, Arizona, Illinois, Indiana, Florida, Oklahoma, and Texas, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

PepsiCo Inc. initiated the recall on August 15, but the news wasn’t made public by the FDA until September 8. While the FDA has yet to publish a complete release, an enforcement report can be found on the agency’s website.
