If you’ve recently stocked on Starbucks to fuel your caffeine addiction, it’s time to check your stash because several coffees have been recalled and no, it’s not the pumpkin cream cold brew.
The recall which is not directly tied to Starbucks restaurants, Pepsico Inc. has recently recalled the fan favorite Starbucks Vanilla Espresso Triple Shot Energy that comes in slim can.
Why? Well the coffees were possibly contaminated with “foreign materials,” (metal fragments) that were sold in stores across the country.
The recall has affected a total of 221 cases of the energy drinks with each pack holding 12 bottles of the 15-ounce drinks, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Here is the list of states where the affected product was distributed:
The ongoing recall was first initiated last month on August 15 and appeared on the FDA website earlier this month on September 8.
So check your fridges or your pantries for this caffeinated product and if you do find one stocked in the fridge door, toss away immediately!
For now, you’ll have to find caffeine elsewhere.
