    If my 2 year old cousin has one of those Starbucks cups, and I bet he does, cause they’re cute and he loves animals, I doubt my mom or her mom would take away the cup. Not that they don’t love him or care for his safety, but if they were to fall over, shatter and suddenly lose their animal face, I’m pretty sure they’d notice and pitch the cup. Common sense. One mother found her child choking on a piece? How hard do you have to drop it to shatter the piece? And who was paying attention to the kid when loud noises were in the vicinity?

    Also…loved the “unmentioned almonds.”

    Let me start out by saying I fully know what they mean, but I still find it funny to read that a candle is being recalled for a fire hazard.

    @MissJ: Unmentioned almonds sound dirty :P

    @blue_duck: If you’re buying a candle with glitter inside, you get what you get.

    I’m impressed that they had a fairly prominent sign announcing the cup recall at my local Starbucks, including why the recall is in place. While waiting for my latte, I read it, and was slightly horrified – who wouldn’t throw away a children’s cup that had broken? I suppose it would still be functional (not dripping liquid), but I’d be scared to have any kind of sharp edges near a toddler’s mouth.
