On Tuesday, Starbucks issued a recall on its stainless steel beverage straws, after reports of mouth injuries.

The recall includes reusable stainless steel, Cold-to-Go drinking straws for both Grande and Venti sizes.

“Starbucks has received three reports in the U.S. and one in Canada of mouth lacerations to young children while drinking,” the company said in its recall announcement. “Consumers should not allow children to handle or use the stainless steel straws.”

The straw and items featuring the straw have been pulled from Starbucks’ online store. The coffee giant sold about 2.5 million units of the straws in the U.S., and an additional 301,000 in Canada.
