Lawsuit says Starbucks' Iced Drinks Have Too Much Ice
Jamie Riley, a spokesperson for Starbucks, said the company is aware of Pincus' claim and believes it is without merit.
"Our customers understand and expect that ice is an essential component of any 'iced' beverage. If a customer is not satisfied with their beverage preparation, we will gladly remake it," she said.
The suit lists says claims could exceed $5 million.
The action recalls an infamous lawsuit filed by a McDonald's (MCD) customer who was burned by hot coffee purchased at a drive thru in 1992. The suit, which was successful, argued the coffee was unreasonably hot.
