Oregon man sues Starbucks over almond milk allergy

Top Stories

A man in Oregon is suing Starbucks for negligence after he says they served him the wrong type of milk, and that it could have killed him.

Max Scher says he ordered a soy latte, but claims the barista gave him almond milk instead, which put him in the hospital. Scher says he regularly tells baristas that he’s allergic to nuts and dairy.

He says he didn’t taste the difference, but immediately felt the effects. He used benedryl and an epi-pen but says they weren’t working, so he drove himself to the hospital.

Scher says he just wants proper compensation to cover the medical costs.
