Starbucks Pulls New Chicken Sandwich Over Complaints of Diarrhea!

A couple weeks ago Starbucks announced the brand new items to bring in the summer season. The items included two brand new refresher beverages flavored and a new breakfast sandwich. Feeling festive, I immediately purchased the Paradise Drink which is everything the brand new Pineapple Passionfruit Refresher entails - pineapple and passionfruit flavors with pineapple chunks, but with coconut milk. It was sweet and certainly refreshing but the combine flavors were not sweet enough to deliver me to a paradise. Let's just say, I won't be making that purchase again.

I was hesitant on trying the brand new Chicken Maple Butter and Egg Sandwich but certainly planned on getting to the new flavor. However, less than two weeks after making it's debut the chain pulled the item from the menu for not meeting "standard". According to several customers, the sandwich that included white chicken meat, unique maple butter and a fluffy egg, caused diarrhea. "Suing for the worst diarrhea of my life. I have been living in the bathroom for two days now," one customer complained. Diarrhea wasn't the only problem! According to reports, one customer was even diagnosed with an infectious bacterial disease found in raw chicken days after trying the sandwich. At this point, I'm certainly glad I didn't get the chance to try the sandwich.

Talking about Starbucks, it has also been announced that 16 Starbucks across the country, five locations in the Seattle area, and one in Everett will be permanently closed due to high rates of crime in the area. These locations include Capitol Hill, Ravenna, Pike/Pine, Union Station and Westlake. Luckily there's more than 100 other Starbucks locations in the Seattle area, more than a dozen in Everett.
