Starbucks issued a recall on August 2 on approximately 2.5 million units of stainless steel straws because of the possibility that they could cause injuries to consumers, an article of cpsc.gov reported.
The stainless steel drinking straws, which come in two different sizes, can cause lacerations to children’s mouths because of their rigidness. Starbucks and federal authorities received three complaints of children sustaining lacerations in the mouth from using the straws. Starbucks is addressing the situation by informing consumers to keep the stainless steel straws away from children. At least 301,000 of the stainless steel straws were sold in Canada.
