Taking a major decision, PepsiCo Company has withdrawn the bottled ‘Starbucks Frappuccino Vanilla Chilled Coffee Drink’ from the market. Actually, some bottles of this bottled drink were allegedly suspected to contain glass, after which this decision has been taken. This voluntary recall was started on 28 January. More than 300,000 bottles of Starbucks Frappuccino Vanilla Cool Coffee Drink are being withdrawn from the market through this recall.
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has called it a Class 2 recall. That is, according to the agency’s website, ‘the product may cause temporary or medically significant adverse health consequences or where the likelihood of serious adverse health consequences is remote’.
Drinks not being sold at retail locations
Some beverages packaged in 13.7-ounce (388 g) glass bottles have been voluntarily recalled, according to a statement from PepsiCo. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that more than 25,000 cases of the glass bottles have been recalled. These drinks were sold all over the country. According to the statement, these products are no longer being sold at Starbucks retail locations. However, the reason for this was not given in the statement. But the US Food and Drug Administration said that this is because of the possible presence of ‘glass’ in coffee bottles.
The statement further said that ‘the North American Coffee Partnership is committed to the high level of quality in the products we provide. Providing a quality experience to our customers is our top priority and we always act with the utmost care whenever any potential concerns are raised’
