Starbucks / straw

Floral Park, NY, United States Review updated:

I bought a cup and a pack of 3 steel straws at starbucks in bellerose, ny, for about 40.00. The second time I used it the steel straw cut my mouth up. It was very painful and is still sore after almost a week. I threw the cup and straws out. This is a horrible, dangerous product. I feel its only fair for the company to refund my 40.00 and the price of my venti latte and pay me for the pain I am suffering because of this straw. They really need to get rid of it. Im sure others have been hurt to. I may call an attorney about this if I dont hear from them!
