Starbucks Recall Children’s Cups. 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.
