If you need a caffeine boost, you may want to be on the lookout not to get any made as by Starbucks, because one of its popular products is recalled.
Drinks that are not adequately sealed could spoil and cause illness.
Despite the recall being initially issued in late November 2021, it has recently come back into the spotlight as the recalled beverages are approaching their expiration date.
The recalled products include:
- Starbucks Doubleshot Espresso; Espresso & Cream with the UPC 012000001772
- Starbucks Doubleshot Espresso; Espresso & Light Cream with the UPC 012000008801
- Starbucks Doubleshot Espresso; Espresso & Salted Caramel Cream with the UPC 012000007293.
The recalled drinks were all sold in 6.5 fluid ounce cans. The best-by date for all three products involved in the recall is March 28th.
To easily recognize this drink, Starbucks’ logo appears above the product name on the half green, half brown cans.
The company recalled 85,956 cases of each flavor, for a total of more than 250,000 cases, according to Food Safety News.
The recall was issued due to “an issue with adequate sealing of canned coffee products potentially lead to premature spoilage.”
In turn, this spoilage may result in illnesses if consumed.
While BGR reports that the FDA recall report notes the recall action was terminated on March 3, due to the nearing expiration date.
The possibility exists that they might already be in the homes of consumers.
The recalled beverages should not be consumed by people who have purchased them.
Replacing them with new ones, or returning them for a full refund, should be the best alternative.
Another option is to simply throw them away.
It is unclear if any illnesses were reported in relation to the recalled products.
It isn’t the first recall to impact grocery store products.
Numerous food items have been removed from store shelves in recent weeks for various reasons.
This month, more than 1,600 pounds of ready-to-eat jerky products were recalled because they may have been contaminated with listeria.
