After discarding thousands of sandwiches containing contaminated meat, Starbucks is suing its meat distributors for almost $5 million.
Once the problem was isolated and taken care of, Starbucks offered Wellshire Farms a second chance to supply ham for their sandwiches. Two years later, in 2010, the famous coffee chain received more grievances about the quality of the meat; it was said that “potentially harmful bacteria” was present in the ham of the warm Starbucks sandwiches. This time, Starbucks did not take any more chances. Wellshire Farms, and the company the ham came from, Maryland-based Hahns’s of Westminster, are no longer working with Starbucks.
With thousands of sandwiches in the garbage, and $4.8 million down the train, Starbucks is looking to get their money back from their former suppliers.
The coffee chain has yet to comment further on the lawsuit.
