An Illinois woman is suing Starbucks for $5 million because she said her coffee has too much ice and not enough liquid.
Stacy Pincus filed her class-action suit in federal court in Chicago last week.
In her suit, she says Starbucks engages in “false and misleading marketing and sale of cold drinks.”
On its menu, the suit says, “Starbucks advertises all of its drinks, including its cold drinks, by fluid ounce. As detailed herein, a Starbucks customer who orders and pays for a cold drink receives much less than advertised — often nearly half as many fluid ounces.”
The suit continued, “Starbucks’ cold drinks are underfilled to make more money and higher profits, to the detriment of consumers who are misled by Starbucks’ intentionally misleading advertising practices.”
