Family Files Lawsuit Against Starbucks After Allegedly Finding Blood In Drinks

A California family is suing Starbucks for blood in their drink, and no it's not a new flavor shot.

According to The Washington Post a complaint was filed last month in San Bernardino County Superior Court, Amanda Vice and her then 2-year-old daughter had been sharing a Java Chip Frappuccino one Saturday in 2016 when family members say they made a gross discovery.

Via The Washington Post:

The lawsuit states that after Vice’s mother-in-law noticed traces of blood and an “odd, metallic smell” on her own cup, “Amanda rushed to the kitchen and saw blood smeared on her cup as well.”

“The blood was smeared on the inside and outside rim of the cup,” according to the lawsuit, released by the Frish Law Group. It added that the family “anxiously examined their hands for blood,” but “nobody was bleeding.”

The family is suing for negligence, emotional distress, battery and assault.

As reported by The Washington Post the incident occurred on February 6th, the lawsuit states that a store manager apologized and told the family she had “located the bleeding employee and removed the employee from the sales floor.”

Starbucks spokesperson also told The Washington Post that they're “fully prepared” to present its case in court.
