A California family is suing Starbucks after allegedly finding the barista’s blood inside their 2-year-olds frappucino.
On Feb. 6 of 2016, the Vice family stopped for drinks at a Starbucks in San Bernardino California when they said to have noticed a “strong metallic smell,” but they didn’t think anything about it at the time.
When they got home, they noticed blood stains on the outside of the Starbucks cups.
Amanda Vice, mother to Peyton, the toddler who allegedly consumed the bloody drink along with her said she called the Starbucks to report the incident and an employee told them that one of the baristas had been bleeding earlier and was taken off the floor.
The manager then offered the family free drinks for a week and assured her that the barista would get tested to make she he or she did not have HIV.
However, the family later learned that the employee was never tested and so they were forced to get tested themselves.
Fortunately, both Peyton and her mother tested negative for HIV twice.
But that was after a grueling 6-month process of not knowing whether the two-year-old and her mother were, in fact, disease free.
The family is now suing the famous Starbucks chain for unspecified damages.
The family’s lawyer said in a statement that the situation caused the family “stress, nervousness, fright, anguish, grief anxiety, worry, and shock for several months while awaiting the second round of test results.”
