This Popular Starbucks Drink Was Just Recalled in Several States

Six months after recalling more than 250,000 cases of its Double Shot Espresso drinks due to "inadequate sealing," Starbucks is pulling another beverage from grocery store shelves.

On September 9, Food Safety News reported that PepsiCo Inc.—the company that makes and distributes ready-to-drink Starbucks products—has recalled 221 cases of Starbucks' Vanilla Espresso Triple Shot drinks because they may be contaminated with metal fragments.

The recall applies to 15-ounce bottles of the beverage, which were packaged in cases of 12 bottles. The coffee drinks were sold in Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Oklahoma, and Texas, but the stores that carried the products have not been specified.

While the UPC number and expiration date have also not been provided, the company urges consumers who still have these beverages to return them to their place of purchase. "Foodborne foreign objects that are hard and sharp are likely to cause serious injury or dental injury," the website's announcement reads.

This recall, which was first initiated on August 15, was posted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in an enforcement report on September 8. However, the agency has not issued a press release for the recall.

The Vanilla Espresso Triple Shot drinks aren't the only Starbucks products that have been removed from sale this summer. In June, the coffee giant issued a voluntary "stop sell" on its new Chicken, Maple Butter & Egg Sandwich because it didn't "meet quality standards." The sandwich was sold in Starbucks locations nationwide.

The decision to get rid of the new sandwich just five days after its launch followed several complaints from customers and employees who reported symptoms of food poisoning after eating it. However, the coffee chain issued a statement that said, "The quality issue that was identified by Starbucks would not lead to foodborne illness and any reports linking the stop sale to illness are inaccurate."

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That! "Anything that's substantially less [than the 7.4% increase] is a deal," said Lempert. "When you

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
