    Allergic reaction to coffee, I called corporate three times now. We were told district would call me or I could have coupons. I refused coupons, called again and told it was referred to the store manager and just escalated. Seems fishy that they can’t simply tell me... See More what’s in the coffee since zero allergens are listed for this specific one. I had more symptoms than listed on here, all verified by the ER. I’m on three medications from this and was given an epi-pen, doc said the next interaction will be worse and they refuse to call me back. I got the run around and lying instead. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting See Less
