Starbucks Recalls China Made Kiddie Cups

Posted: October 12, 2007 in MISC

Starbucks is recalling around 250,000 children’s cups because the cups pose a choking hazard. The coffee company recalled the plastic products because they can break, leaving sharp edges and small pieces children can choke on.

This is another item on a list of recalled products that were manufactured in China. Other recalled products include many children’s toys as some were painted with paint that contained dangerous amounts of lead.

The recalled cups with protruding faces of a ladybug, a turtle, a bunny, and a chick were sold in Starbucks stores.

Starbucks is offering a free beverage to anyone who returns one of the cups.
