Coffee chain is under fire over this study. Consumers are going to want to see the results of this study.
Health officials and the media in the UK have tested the coffee from three major coffee chains. They include Starbucks UK, Caffe Nero, and Costa Coffee. What they found was that at some locations, fecal material was found in their coffee. Not all locations, but an extremely terrifying 3 out of 10 locations tested positive.
A BBC consumer affairs study found that three UK coffee chains — Starbucks UK, Caffe Nero, and Costa Coffee — recently tested positive for the presence of the disease-causing bacteria found in human excrement.
How did fecal bacteria get into the coffee? We’ll hazard a guess with Starbucks.
It just might have something to do with the Muslim-friendly hiring practice the company has been pushing in defiance of President Trump’s travel ban. In January, Starbucks pledged to hire 10,000 Muslims to staff its branch locations.
Now, it is looking as though that corporate decision is coming back to bite Starbucks in their bottom line.
