REPORT: Starbucks sued over claims of exposure to potentially fatal pest-control chemicals


A group of Starbucks customers in New York City are suing the coffee-shop chain, claiming pest-extermination strips that contain a potentially lethal chemical were used in the company’s Manhattan locations.

The lawsuit alleged that Starbucks cafes “have been permeated with” a pesticide called dichlorvos or 2,2-dichlorovinyl dimethyl phosphate, better known as DDVP, which is “highly poisonous and completely unfit for use in proximity to food, beverages and people.” It was in the form of no-pest strips, which third-party exterminators and store workers warned managers about to no avail, according to the suit.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Starbucks has intentionally and wantonly exposed its customers to toxic chemicals with a complete disregard for the impact on their customers’ health,” the 10 plaintiffs said in the class action filed in the New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan on Tuesday.
