[Ed. – Owing to the fact it was McDonald’s, it is somewhat surprising the customers didn’t assume that was how it was supposed to taste.]
A pregnant Alberta woman isn’t the only customer who has sipped a McDonald’s coffee to find it was actually cleaning fluid, CBC News has learned.
A man says the same thing happened to him in Red Deer, Alta. — and it seems there are other cases.
When CBC News inquired, McDonald’s Canada acknowledged the company has had “other isolated incidents” of the same nature.
Earlier this week, Sarah Douglas picked up a latte at a McDonald’s in Lethbridge and took a sip — only to spit it out when she tasted a mouthful of strong chemicals.
She raced back to the restaurant, where she learned that the chemicals in her coffee was cleanser from two cleaning lines that were still hooked up to the latte machine. According to an employee, the same thing had happened just a few weeks earlier.
After hearing Douglas’s story, Corey Irwin from Red Deer told CBC News the same thing happened to him late last year.
