The parents of a young girl freaked out after realizing that their Starbucks beverages were contaminated with a female employee’s blood, according to court documents filed in California.
Amanda Vice, her husband Louis Vice, and his mother Rhonda Agles, all of Redlands, went to the Starbucks located at 601 West 2nd Street in San Bernardino to buy drinks.
A female employee served them all the drinks they ordered.
Amanda, her family, and the 2-year-old girl sat down at a table and they began enjoying their drinks.
When they were done drinking, the family realized that there were blood stains inside the cups.
Amanda grabbed the cup from her 2-year-old daughter and opened the lid.
She was horrified to see that her daughter licked whipped cream that contained the female employee’s blood.
The couple quickly went to the manager who offered them $1,000 each and free drinks for a week.
However, the family was furious and distressed because that afraid of the diseases they may have contracted from the employee’s blood.
The family demanded that the employee be tested for HIV but the company did not force her to take a test.
The family members were twice tested for HIV and they were negative.
The family is suing for negligence, fraud, intentional infliction of emotional distress, battery, assault, negligent hiring, and negligent training and supervision.
They claim that Starbucks allowed the female employee to work despite her bleeding.
The family wants millions of dollars for the stress, nervousness, fright, anguish, grief, anxiety, worry, and shock they experienced over the several months they waited for their test results.
