Starbucks customer claims cookie broke teeth

By Bethany Krajelis | Dec 16, 2014

A woman who claims a cookie she bought at a suburban Starbucks fractured her teeth is suing.

Vaciliki Ress filed a lawsuit Dec. 3 in Cook County Circuit Court against Starbucks Corp., English Bay Batter Ltd., and Kilmer Van Nostrand Co. Ltd.

Ress claims she was at the Starbucks at 1401 Waukegan Road in Glenview on Dec. 5, 2012, when she ordered a cookie the suit says was "beyond its sale date" and "so hard it caused her teeth to fracture and break upon biting into it."

According to the suit, Starbucks sold and prepared the cookie and the other defendants make, produce and supply cookies, cakes and other items to the retail coffee giant.

The suit does not identify the type of cookie that allegedly caused Ress' injuries, but each of its three counts seeks $50,000 in damages.

She is represented by Chicago attorney John C. Wunsch.

Cook County Circuit Court case number: 2014L012550.
