The recall involves reusable stainless steel, Cold-to-Go food-grade drinking straws in two sizes. The straws were packaged and sold in sets of three and were also sold as a component of two sizes of stainless steel beverage cups: Grande 16-ounce (473 milllitre) cups and Venti 24-ounce (710 millilitre) cups. The straws feature a ridge at the bottom that keeps the straw attached to the lid. The Grande straws measure approximately 9.5 inches and the Venti straws measure approximately 10.4 inches.

Starbucks has received three reports in the U.S. and one in Canada of mouth lacerations to young children while drinking. About 2.5 million units were sold in the U.S., and additional 301,000 were sold in Canada. The items were sold in Starbucks® stores nationwide, and online at Starbucks.com.

Consumers should not allow children to handle or use the stainless steel straws. Customers with questions should visit their local Starbucks or call 800-782-7282 from 3 a.m. to Midnight PT daily for more information.
