Starbucks Water Bottle Recall

On January 28, 2010, a voluntary recall of 12,200 glass water bottles was announced by Starbucks Corp., the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, and Health Canada. The recalled water bottles and the stopper have the potential to shatter, which can cause hand lacerations.

The 20-oz. glass water bottles are clear with SKU number 11003503 and the words “Glass Water Bottle” printed on a blue label.

There have been eight reports of hand lacerations associated with the recalled bottles, which were sold in Starbucks stores nationwide during January 2010.

Customers are urged to stop using the bottles immediately and return the product to the store where it was purchases for a full refund. A complimentary beverage will also be awarded upon return of the recalled bottles. Customers can contact Starbucks at 877-492-6333.
