Faecal bacteria 'in ice in Costa, Starbucks and Caffe Nero'
Ice from three of the UK's biggest coffee chains has been found to contain bacteria from faeces, according to a BBC investigation. Samples of iced drinks from Costa Coffee, Starbucks and Caffe Nero contained varying levels of the bacteria, the BBC's Watchdog found. Seven out of 10 samples of Costa ice were found to be contaminated with bacteria found in faeces. At both Starbucks and Caffe Nero, three out of 10 samples tested contained the bacteria known as faecal coliforms. A Caffe Nero spokesman said "a thorough investigation" was underway, and that the chain would take "Appropriate action".
