Beware: This Starbucks Drink Just Got Recalled

Starbucks, the well-known coffee chain, has issued a recall of its Vanilla Espresso Triple Shot drinks due to a potential contamination with an undeclared milk allergen. This recall, which was issued in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), affects the Vanilla Espresso Triple Shot drinks that were sold in Tall, Grande, and Venti sizes at Starbucks stores in the United States.

Espresso, a strong coffee drink that is typically served in small portions, is made by forcing hot water through finely ground coffee beans. The result is a concentrated, full-bodied coffee with a thick, creamy layer of foam on top, known as crema. Espresso can be enjoyed on its own, or used as the base for a variety of other coffee drinks, such as lattes, cappuccinos, and Americanos.

Starbucks, which was founded in Seattle in 1971, is now one of the largest coffee chains in the world, with more than 30,000 locations in over 80 countries. The company is known for its wide range of coffee and tea drinks, as well as its food offerings and various merchandise.

The Vanilla Espresso Triple Shot drink is a popular offering at Starbucks, and is made by blending espresso with vanilla syrup, and then adding a triple shot of espresso. The drink is usually served over ice and is a great option for those looking for a pick-me-up with a touch of sweetness.

However, the Vanilla Espresso Triple Shot drinks that are being recalled may contain an undeclared milk allergen, which could be harmful to those with milk allergies or sensitivities. The recall was issued after it was discovered that the vanilla syrup used in the drink was made with dairy, but this was not properly declared on the drink’s label.

To protect yourself, if you have a milk allergy or sensitivity, you should avoid consuming the Vanilla Espresso Triple Shot drinks that are affected by this recall. If you have already purchased one of these drinks, you can return it to the store where it was purchased for a full refund. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact Starbucks customer service at 1-800-782-7282.

It is important to always check labels and ingredient information when purchasing food and drinks, especially if you have an allergy or sensitivity. In addition, if you experience any symptoms of an allergic reaction after consuming a food or drink, seek medical attention immediately.
