    Are there phthalates in Starbuck's cinnamon

    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:

    "Greetings Craig!
    Thank you for contacting starbucks regarding information on phthalates.
    While we understand that some customers may have a need to know specific ingredient information prior to

    Thanks again for writing us. If you ever have any questions or concerns in the future, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

    Sounds like they are telling me not to drink Starbucks coffee.
