Starbucks recalls stainless-steel straws after reports of children cutting mouths

Consumers should not allow children to use the straws

SEATTLE, Wash. (FOX21) – Starbucks has recalled over 2.5 million packs of stainless-steel straws on Tuesday after three reports of children suffering mouth lacerations while using them.

The straws were sold in Starbucks stores nationwide and online on the company web site in sets of three for $6 each between June 2012 and June 2016. The beverage cups with straws included were sold for between $11 to $30.

An additional 301,000 packs were sold in Canada.

The straws were intended for use with two sizes of stainless-steel cups Starbucks also sold.

Consumers should not allow children to use the straws, which are rigid and pose a risk of injury.
