After reading a news article stating that some in cinnamons contain phthalates, I wrote a letter to Starbucks customer service asking them if they could assure me that there are no phthalates in the cinnamon that is used in Starbusks stores. This is the answer I received:
Thank you for contacting starbucks regarding information on phthalates.
