    Product Recall: Starbucks - 16oz Stainless Steel Cold Cup with Stainless Steel Straw.

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Product Recall:

    Starbucks Coffee Australia Pty Ltd 16oz Stainless Steel Cold Cup with Stainless Steel Straw

    What are the defects?

    Stainless steel drinking straw is rigid and if used by a child there is a risk of injury where the child engages in activities unrelated to drinking, such as running or jumping, while using the straw.

    What are the hazards?


    A child may suffer injury (such as mouth lacerations) from the straw if they engage in activities unrelated to drinking, such as running or jumping, while using the straw.

    What should consumers do?


    A replacement (plastic) straw is available in store. Customers should return the stainless steel straw to any Starbucks store to receive a replacement (plastic) straw.


    ------------------------------------

    What happened to "stop running around like an idiot, sit down and have your drink" or the parental classic "you could take an eye out with that"

    I didn't look to see if there was a recall for "drawing pins" that kids might stick up their nose.

    Their coffee is far more dangerous than their straws. Common sense would say, "don't drink it", yet people all over the world do. Recall their coffee too before someone does irreversible damage to their tastebuds.

    Hmmm, I can also visualise a plastic straw going in the eye or up the nose "if they engage in activities unrelated to drinking, such as running or jumping, while using the straw"!

    Probably more danger of scratching their iPad with it, as that seems to be a common activity related to drinking and eating these days.

    So can I ..... There is a party trick that allows one to drive a plastic drinking straw all the way through a fairly large uncooked potato.

    Having never been into a Starbucks, I assume this is for Iced Coffees or somesuch?
    I think the SS cups & straws are a great idea as if they have paid $$s for them it might stop the ferals throwing their cardboard cups out of the window of their cars and onto my street.
    Then all I would need is for McDonalds to sell all their burgers in stainless steel boxes and we could eliminate that category of litter also.

    On second thoughts they would probably still throw them out of the car.
