According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, a “foreign object (glass)” had been found inside the drink. The recall is a labeled Class II, which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration defines as having “a lower chance of causing major injuries or death, but where there is still the possibility of serious enough adverse events to have irreversible consequences.”
