A Starbucks customer in Texas is suing the coffee giant after allegedly getting first- and second-degree burns from a spilled cup of coffee.
The incident allegedly occurred in April when Mary Simms was handed the wrong coffee at a Starbucks drive-thru in Tomball, according to Fox 26, citing court documents.
According to the lawsuit, Simms was handing back the coffee when the lid popped off.
As a result, the coffee spilled all over her lap, allegedly causing first- and second-degree burns, according to the suit.
Simms is seeking up to $75,000.
Starbucks told FOX Business that it is aware of and currently investigating Simms' claim.
"We take our responsibility to providing a safe environment seriously, and our partners (employees) take great pride in ensuring our beverages are crafted with care and delivered to customers safely," Starbucks said in a statement.
