The lawsuit indicates Starbucks trashed only some of the sandwiches containing ham bought from the vendor. Sandwiches containing meat from the supplier continued to be sold at Starbucks stores for nearly two weeks after the company learned at least some of the ham purchased from Wellshire Farms Inc. was tainted.
A Starbucks spokesman declined to say when the company stopped selling all the sandwiches using the ham provided by Wellshire Farms.
Speaking Friday, spokesman Zak Hutson said that the ham used in the hot breakfast sandwiches – which were pulled from Starbucks shelves three times before Starbucks changed ham suppliers – was a different from the Wellshire-provided meat used chain’s cold sandwiches. The lawsuit indicates cold sandwiches using the Wellshire-sourced ham remained for sale for 11 days after Starbucks found “potentially harmful bacteria” on ham bought from the New Jersey pork products supplier.
And perhaps 'news_to_use' you might have included a date when this alleged ham infraction occurred---ten years ago --- last week..? I once left a ham sandwich out on my back porch overnight and the raccoons ate it------ but they didn't want to sue. Oh, by the bye, since you and JoeyT are such goods chums why not ask him to take you for a boat ride on lake union here in Seattle. Hot dogs optional.
