Starbucks has recalled 2.8 million stainless steel drinking straws after four reports of children injuring their mouths.

The recall for the straws includes the stainless steel Cold-to-Go reusable straws that come in a pack of three. The straws were sold as a component of the following two cups: Grande 16-ounce cups and Venti 24-ounce cups. The straw featured a ridge at the bottom to help it stay in the lid of the cup.

These two cups and the straws that they came with have been removed from Starbucks stores and online. Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends that “Consumers should not allow children to handle or use the stainless steel straws.”
