Starbucks Frappuccino bottles recalled over foreign object
PepsiCo, Inc is recalling more than 25,000 cases of Starbucks coffee drinks that had been contaminated, according to federal officials.
PepsiCo said in a statement to FOX Business that it initiated the recall for select lots of Starbucks Frappuccino Vanilla bottles, on behalf of the North American Coffee Partnership, that were shipped around the nation.
The world's second-largest food and beverage business didn't say why the products were being recalled.

However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) posted a note on its website that the product has been recalled because of a "foreign object (glass)."
The FDA has also classified it as a "Class II" recall.
This means "the use of or exposure to a violative product may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences or where the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote," according to the FDA.
