Sarah Douglas, who is pregnant, knew something was terribly wrong when she pulled over to spit our some coffee.
After going through the drive-thru and ordering a latte from a McDonald's in Alberta, Canada, Douglas took a sip and immediately knew something was off. She pulled over and spit the coffee out, then went back to the franchise to complain. Once there, it was discovered that two lines going into the latte machine were not hooked up to milk as they should be, but were connected to cleaning fluid.
A spokesperson for the McDonald's franchise said:
What happened is that the machine was being cleaned — as it is every morning. Unfortunately, the milk supply line was connected to the cleaning solution while this guest's drink was made. We have taken immediate action to review the proper cleaning procedures with the team and have put additional signage up as an added reminder.
Mistakes happen, and it's good to know they are keeping the place clean, but still—
Some were banking on a big payout.
Others thought maybe there needed to be some employee turnaround.
There were still more questions.
Pay attention people!
Be safe out there!
