Starbucks Sued After Family Finds Blood

The manager also agreed to have the worker take a blood test, although the employee never ended up being forced to do so, according to the complaint.

The lawsuit alleges that following the incident February 6, the family spoke several times with supervisors at the Starbucks location where they purchased the beverages.

"I thought it was sort of belittling", Amanda told CBS LA.

They ordered a venti hot white chocolate mocha topped by whipped cream, a grande java chip frappuccino and a venti ice water, the suit says. They called the Starbucks to inform the coffee shop about the stains and were told by a staff member that an employee who was working that day had been bleeding but had since been taken out of the sales area.

The lawsuit against Starbucks Coffee Company seeks damages because of a failure to warn the family, negligence, breach of express warranty, breach of implied warranty, fraud, intentional infliction of emotional distress, battery, assault, negligent hiring, and negligent training and supervision. Starbucks originally offered the family free drinks for a week, then $1,000 each, per the Vices, but they chose to seek damages instead via the suit, especially since they say Starbucks didn't make the employee get tested, per CBS Los Angeles.

A statement from Starbucks says they are prepared to present their case in court.

"Once we drank it", she told KTLA, "then we could see on the inside of the rim that there was blood".

The defender was cautioned and further punishment was to follow when Shelvey delivered the free-kick. Matt Ritchie's 65th-minute goal consigned the Red Devils to their fifth league defeat of the season.

"My wife and baby just drank someone's blood", Louis Vice told the station.

"We felt sick to our stomachs", Amanda Vice told KTLA. The employee was not compelled to get tested, according to the press release. She didn't know if ingesting the blood could get them sick.

"Mrs. Vice is primarily concerned about her toddler", Stan Pekler, the family's attorney, said in a phone interview Thursday with The Post. So with no results coming in from Starbucks, the family opted to get themselves tested.

Starbucks eventually offered $1,000 to each member of the family, but that was not satisfactory.

Ultimately, the tests came back clean, according to the law firm. He says filing a lawsuit, two years later, is their last resort.

"In this instance, we've been working with the family directly since nearly immediately after they informed us of their experience", he said.
