Starbucks Recalls 38,000 Children's Cups

May 28, 2003 | AP

Starbucks Coffee Co. is recalling about 38,000 plastic children's cups because small pieces of plastic on them can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.

The Seattle-based company has received two reports of pieces of the tumbler cup's straw coming off when the straw is chewed. No injuries have been reported, but in one case a child choked on a detached piece of the straw, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.

The recalled cup is made of clear plastic in the shape of a bear with the words "Bearista Bear" printed on the front. The cup, sold in blue or green, has a screw-on lid in the shape of a bear's head, with a flexible straw.

Starbucks stores nationwide sold the cups this month and in April for about $7.
