    Starbucks announced that it is recalling a stainless steel beverage straw for being too rigid and posing a risk of injury.

    The company received four reports of children getting cuts in their mouths while drinking from the straws.

    The recall involves about 2.5 million reusable straws in the United States, as well as around 301,000 sold in Canada.

    The straws, which come in two sizes, were sold in sets of three and were included with the purchase of Starbucks 16-ounce Grande and 24-ounce Venti stainless steel beverage cups.
