This is beyond disgusting. Amanda Vice says her 2 year-old daughter’s Frappuccino had chocolate, whipped cream and ….blood. Now, the family is suing Starbucks over it. Usually, when I hear someone is suing McDonald’s or Starbucks, I just figure it’s someone looking for a payday. Not this time. Starbucks claims a barista cut themselves and was removed from the floor. They even said they were having the server tested for AIDS, but they didn’t do that. So, the whole family had to get themselves tested. Let me ask you something… just how much does a barista have to be bleeding to get that much blood into multiple drinks? Gross.
The Vice family stopped for drinks at the Starbucks at 601 W. 2nd Street in San Bernardino on February 6, 2016. Gee, that was two years ago… why is this coming out now? They ordered drinks and when they came, the family claims they smelled a ‘strong metallic smell’, but they dismissed it. When they got home, they noticed blood stains in and on the outside of the cups. The 2 year-old little girl, Payton, had been drinking from her mother’s frappuccino. “She was licking the whipped cream where it had been sitting on top,” Vice told CBS LA. “It was inside of the rim of my frappuccino,” she added. “My wife and my baby just drank someone’s blood,” her husband Louis told KTLA. “It was bad.”
The family called the Starbucks to complain and file an incident report. An employee there old them that one of the baristas had been bleeding earlier and was taken off the floor. The manager at first offered the family free drinks for a week and as noted before said that the barista would get tested to make sure he or she didn’t have HIV or any other kind of blood borne disease. “We felt sick to our stomachs, we shouldn’t have to worry about going to get something to drink and there being blood in our drink where we could get sick,” Vice said. “It’s very stressful.”
Evidently, the first test came back negative. But the family had to get retested six weeks later to make sure they were clean. “This caused the family stress, nervousness, fright, anguish, grief, anxiety, worry and shock for several months while awaiting the second round of test results,” their lawyers said. The second test also came back negative. I’ve got to say that if I were a Starbucks customer, and I’m not, that I’d be looking at my drinks very carefully from this point on.
Later, Starbucks offered a paltry $1,000 to each family member who drank a tainted drink, but the Vices say that won’t cut it. I don’t blame them. That’s insulting. “I thought it was sort of belittling,” Vice says now of the offer. They are now suing for unspecified damages and I hope they win. This is one of the most disgusting things I’ve heard of.
Starbucks is refusing to comment to the media and are refusing to answer any specific questions but released this statement: “We are aware of this claim that allegedly took place in 2016, and are prepared to present our case in court.” I bet. This probably came out now because it is finally getting ready to go to court. Starbucks deserves to be royally slapped over this one.
Starbucks not only endangered the mother, but a child as well. They lied and did not get the employee tested and forced the family to handle that themselves. I have to wonder if the employee is still employed there. This happened in San Bernardino where there are a ton of illegal immigrants who are not inoculated and come here with diseases such as hepatitis and TB as well. I’m sure the parents were freaked over this.
This family’s lawyers are going to rip Starbucks a new one over this case. I can’t see Starbucks winning here. If they had any sense at all, they’d settle out of court. The manager and at least one employee is at fault here. The bad PR here alone is going to be monumental. It couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of liberal asshats. Maybe the next time you order from Starbucks, you should tell them to hold the blood.
