Starbucks dessert with unlabelled nut contamination causes anaphylactic reaction

Speaking of people serving food which causes an allergic reaction, here’s one from 2009; Kathy Tomlinson for the CBC – Near fatal reaction caused by Starbucks dessert:

Within days of the incident Kristin’s mother, Norma Gardiner, said she went into the same Starbucks outlet to see if a warning label had been put on the parfait containers. The label hadn’t changed, she said, and when she asked an employee if the product contained nuts, she said she was also told it did not.

Business as usual.

And here’s Starbucks’ response:

“‘Sorry for the inconvenience. How about we send you a Starbucks card?'”
