Starbucks Just Announced A Huge Recall Because Of An E. Coli Scare


First Chipotle and now Starbucks? Jeez, E. Coli has it OUT for all you basics.

The Seattle-originated coffee megachain is reportedly recalling a line of sandwiches from West Coast locations after celery used in its Holiday Turkey & Stuffing Paninis tested positive for E. Coli.

That same celery, produced by Taylor Farms Pacific, was an ingredient in Costco's chicken salad that made 19 people sick after eating it.

According to a press release by the FDA, the recall covers food items sold at various 7-Eleven, Albertsons, Safeway, Target and Walmart locations, as well as a few other West Coast supermarket chains.

The FDA did specify the bacteria isn't viewed as incredibly dangerous, emphasizing the recalls were made “out of an abundance of caution."

The official statement explained,

Luckily, there are no confirmed cases of people getting sick from the paninis sold at Starbucks, meaning the bacteria probably didn't spread there.

Although, it's more probable people haven't gotten sick because WHO GOES TO STARBUCKS AND BUYS A HOLIDAY TURKEY & STUFFING PANINI?!?!
