Amanda and Louis Vice along with his mother Rhonda Agles say back in February 2016 they stopped at a San Bernardino Starbucks to order several drinks for their family.
When they got home, they say they noticed a red smear on the side of one of the cups and that the drink had a “strong metallic smell.”
Another cup, being shared by another family member and the couple’s two-year-old daughter had a similar red smear.
Amanda says she didn’t notice anything was amiss at first, until she saw her daughter licking the lid and eating the drink’s whipped cream.
“Once we drank it, then we could see on the inside of the rim that there was blood.”
After looking among themselves, the family realized none of them were bleeding and then called the Starbucks they were at to report what they found.
It was then they were told that one of the baristas was bleeding and was removed from the floor.
The family says they were offered free drinks for a week from the manager, but they refused saying they wanted the employee to get a blood test to determine if they were HIV positive or had any other communicable disease.
A news release says that while the manager agreed, the employee wasn’t forced to get the test. MORE
