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.
This recall only applies to the 15-ounce cans of Starbucks Vanilla Triple Shot that come in packs of 12. The FDA reports that 221 cases have been affected. A PepsiCo spokesperson told USA Today that the affected products have a best-by date of March 20, 2023.
Consumers who have questions can call PepsiCo Consumer Relations at 1-800-211-8307. Anyone who is concerned about an injury or illness is urged to contact their health care provider.
