More than 300,000 bottles of Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino chilled coffee drinks have been recalled due to possible glass in the drink.
PepsiCo, which distributes Starbucks-branded ready-to-drink coffee beverages, has voluntarily recalled 25,200 cases (containing 12 bottles each), according to the Food and Drug Administration website. The reason for the recall is a foreign object (glass), according to the FDA site.
The drinks were sold nationwide, according to the recall issued in late January.
PepsiCo initiated the recall on behalf of the North American Coffee Partnership, the joint venture it formed with Starbucks in 1994. In a statement, the organization said the products, which are not sold at Starbucks locations, will be removed from other stores.
