Starbucks Recalls Children's Plastic Cups

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Starbucks Coffee Co., of Seattle, WA, announced a voluntary recall of Starbucks Children’s Plastic Cups. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

The recall includes four styles of Starbucks children’s plastic 10-ounce cups. Styles include “Dot” Red Ladybug; “Dash” Green Turtle; Bunny Pink; and Chick Yellow cups (pictured below). The cups were sold exclusively at Starbucks stores nationwide from May 2006 through August 2007 for about $6.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled cups away from young children and contact Starbucks for instructions on returning the cups for a refund. Starbucks is also offering a complimentary beverage as an incentive to return the recalled cups. For additional information, contact Starbucks at (888) 288-4008 anytime or visit the firm’s Web site at
