Many people around the world enjoy iced coffee and other cool drinks from baristas employed by Starbucks, Caffe Nero, and Costa Coffee. However, they may want to think twice before ordering again. The BBC’s “Watchdog” program performs consumer affairs checks on popular businesses. Their latest discovery found fecal bacteria in samples from the three popular coffee chains.
Yes, that’s right, bacteria that is present in feces is now included with customer’s ice at Starbucks, Caffe Nero, and Costa Coffee.
Samples taken from various stores found changeable levels of contamination. Head of policy at the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health Tony Lewis said that the amounts were “concerning.” He added that the bacteria “should not be present at any level – never mind the significant numbers found.”
The investigation tested the cleanliness of tables, trays, and ice at 30 different branches. Not surprisingly, the discovery comes right on the heels of Starbucks’ announcement to employ refugees from third-world countries.
