The drinking straws were distributed to Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Faeroe Islands, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.

The product came from China and the affected product has batch code: 16462; article number: 93/2017 and bar code: 4029811191796.
