TB With Your Starbucks Coffee? Starbucks in San Diego Hiring Refugees With Very High Rates of Tuberculosis

54

A Starbucks in El Cajon, California, located in San Diego County, held a hiring event for refugees specifically — but employers might want to take a look at this: Many of these refugees carry tuberculosis.

Are employers going to test them first for the highly contagious disease?

The left likes to open doors and embrace refugees from all walks of life. But doing so can often bring in disease and illness — like tuberculosis.

Either way, coffee drinkers: Beware. Making that cup of Joe at home could prove a life-saver.

Breitbart has the story (h/t Refugee Resettlement Watch)

Starbucks held a hiring event exclusively for refugees in El Cajon, California on Tuesday, part of its recently announced commitment to hire more than 10,000 refugees over the next five years.

El Cajon is located in San Diego County, where more than 20,000 refugees have have been resettled by the federal government in the past nine and a half years since the beginning of Fiscal Year 2008.

A 2013 study from a research team led by Dr. Timothy Rodwell, “an associate professor and physician in the Division of Global Health at UCSD [University of California at San Diego]” that “analyzed data from LTBI [latent tuberculosis infection] screening results of 4,280 refugees resettled in San Diego County between January 2010 and October 2012,” noted that “San Diego County, in California, is a leading refugee resettlement site, and it also has one of the highest rates of active TB in the country, with an incidence rate of 8.4 cases per 100 000 people in 2011.”

[….]

In other words, the incidence of active TB among the 4,280 refugees who were resettled in San Diego County between January 2010 and October 2012 was 327 per 100,000, more than 100 times greater than the incidence of active TB among the entire population of the United States in 2016.

Wow! I didn’t know this next bit! Refugee contractors*** repeatedly tell the public that only those with latent TB are admitted to the US, but even if that is all we are admitting, that is still a risk for public health.

About four percent of the entire population of the United States tests positive for latent TB infection. Around 10 percent of those with LTBI will develop active TB at some point in their lives. The triggering mechanism to activate latent TB is not entirely understood, but high levels of stress, crowded living situations, poor public health practices, the presence of other diseases that lower the immune system, and behavioral conduct–such as smoking–appear to increase the chances of activation.

The 21.4 percent of refugees in the San Diego County study who tested positive for latent TB infection is about five times the national average.

Breitbart News contacted Starbucks to learn if their refugee hiring process will include mandatory testing for latent and active TB, but has not received a response.

Of course not! …

For those who ask me all the time—what can I do? Write to the White House and tell the Prez to tighten up admission requirements for migrants with communicable diseases. If terrorism doesn’t scare you, TB might!

      How would you like your TB, whipped or -hack- frothed?

      • santashandler

        Ooooohhhh! Was just on my way to Starbuck’s. Turning around now.

        • Collin R. Hinrichs

          No TB on TGIF? It’s culturally enriched Somali TB, right next to Sumatra, lol.

          • santashandler

            The irony is, they have such good pastries but, their coffee tastes like, well, you know.

          • Collin R. Hinrichs

            That’s true, fortunately for me, Folger’s Black Silk is just fine. I was lucky enough to work in Europe for a while, the coffee there, whether in Germany, Holland, Italy, etc., is outstanding. I definitely didn’t miss Starbucks.

          • santashandler

            Yes. The European coffee. Nothing like it. But, I’m sure in short order, the new “tenants” there will change that too.

          • Collin R. Hinrichs

            I’m sure they will, too, to include some nice morning noise from the nearest minaret to remind the Europeans of whose in charge now.

          • santashandler

            Unfortunately, yes.

      AR….
      Boy, is that rich…your logo, that is.
      If you don’t mind, I’ll be calling that nasty company Starburka forever more.
      I quit that place a few years ago….don’t even miss their coffee…I prefer my own by far.
      Anyway, thank you for the clever renaming of a traitorous company that should forthrightly be closed down.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      Starbucks can include me out as customer from here on out. It’s just too bad Starbucks managed to eliminate all their competition in the coffee house business — at least in my area of Caliphornication.

    Thankfully in California we have Coffee Bean.
    The coffee’s better with no anti-Americanism disease.

      I’ll have to look for a Coffee Bean because I haven’t seen any around but Starburka is everywhere.

  • az

    And TB is a nasty one. It requires very long treatments that no one does, because they fell ok after the first one.
    In that time frame not only they develop multi resistant TB and die, but they also spread widely the disease, as TB is highly contagious.

    Finally, a Muslim contribution to America Hillary and Obama can be proud of.

    • spudmans1

      Outstanding analogy, simply outstanding!

  • Collin R. Hinrichs

    If that’s in their stores, I’d hate to hear how it is in the factories where they process the beans for sale in the store in k-cups and ground bags. If it’s TB in the coffee shops, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear dysentery from their store bought goods.

  • santashandler

    Didn’t Ellis Island refuse to grant entry to the U.S. those who had TB? Where are those health officials now. Oh, that’s right, they’re busy getting ready to testify against Trump and associates about his “involvment” with Russia…….

    • ladywarrior

      Yes….Ellis island did refuse entry if they had TB, Polio, and other diseases. Unfortunately for all of us Obama was letting everyone in – TBI or not. They’ve had lots of case in the North….Indiana….Iowa (where the man who owns Chobani Yogurt has his plant and where he hires predominately immigrant Muslims). It’s actually the law not to let in people with active disease…..but Obama’s police was: We don’t care about no stinky diseases :0(

      • santashandler

        I believe under Obama, if you protested about him letting in those with TB, YOU would be investigated……so, what’s changed.

  • Ziggy46

    Starbucks is a no-go zone for me. They, not unlike all Socialists/Commies, don’t deserve me as a customer and others they belie because of their politics, faith, support for the First and Second Amendments and other prejudices they hold so dearly. Now, there is a TB diagnosis in one of a SD California shop, no shock and awe here. One can be sure that others have the same issue. Let’s face it their customer’ health holds little importance, hiring someone, a Muslim, or others with TB is a greater need. It is just another reason, a major one, to avoid this overpriced coffee peddler.

    • glnman

      One could only hope that there are enough smart Americans who will stop frequenting Starbucks to put them under. I’ll try to be optimistic but time will tell. It defies logic and common sense why so many people hate this country enough to hire these savages to prepare consumables that will end up making many folks seriously ill and then convincing themselves that they are being the saviors of the downtrodden. These people/Muslims came from a hellhole of their own making and they aim to create hell on earth here in America. Starbucks is blind and stupid.

      • Ziggy46

        Starbucks is so damn (being polite) self-righteous, as are most if not all Leftist corporations. They have the audacity to fire someone for being pro-Trump but, in turn, hire those bent on America’s downfall. Mind you, we have a share of homegrown Americans who endeavor to turn this nation into a massive Marxist collective. Starbucks in all its corporate self-righteousness folks is anti-American but this does not apparently affect their bottom-line. They like to folks to believe they are what makes America great, in truth, they are subversives and serve crappy coffee.

        They, Starbucks, and others of great unwashed of leftist corporate America, loathe Conservative Americans, Christian Americans and Jewish Americans… law enforcement is likely in a specialized category of utter hatred. Remember Starbucks is likely hazardous to one’s health.

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    Back when I was in college, my room mate and I were quarantined because his girlfriend’s Chinese grandmother had TB.

    The levels of contamination found were especially shocking: 30 per cent of the iced drinks at Starbucks and Caffe Nero tested positive for fecal coliform, and a whopping 70 per cent of the drinks at Costa had it.

    Health repercussions of ingesting the bacteria include upset stomach, diarrhea, ear infections and rashes.

    Tony Lewis, a spokesperson for the food-safety group, Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, said to Watchdog that these levels were “concerning” and added, “these should not be present at any level, never mind the significant numbers found.”

    This isn’t exactly news to food safety experts, though. A 2016 study conducted by Richard Meldrum, associate director of the School of Occupational and Public Health at Ryerson University, found that of 64 ice samples collected from 40 food establishments in Toronto, 7.8 per cent of them tested positive for fecal coliform. What’s more, 35 per cent of the establishments had dirty ice storage facilities and 15 per cent had visible biofilm on the ice machines.

    “This has always been an issue with ice,” says Keith Warriner, a food safety professor at the University of Guelph. “It’s because these places use municipal water, which has chlorine in it, to make ice, so they have to take the chlorine out otherwise the ice will taste awful. They’ll pass the water through a filter first, but if that filter hasn’t been cleaned or changed, there will be a buildup of biofilm bacteria that can have things like fecal coliform and E. coli.”

    Other sources of it are related to handling practices, like if a person doesn’t wash their hands after using the bathroom and then touches the ice, bucket or utensils.

    But it’s important to note, he says, that fecal coliform does not necessarily derive from fecal sources, so maybe your Starbucks doesn’t have poop in it, per se. The bacteria can also be found in soil and insects, as well as other things in the environment like fruits and vegetables, according to Live Science.

    The reason ice is such a great environment for fecal coliform, though, is because the cold preserves the pathogens.

    “Once you put it in a drink, you’re basically ingesting it straight,” Warriner says.

    Unless that drink is straight booze. The pathogens on contaminated ice will be killed off after five minutes in a glass of straight alcohol, like vodka, Warriner says. But if it’s in a mixed drink, soft drink or coffee, the bacteria will survive.

    He says if you’re getting ice from a commercial ice maker, like at the movie theatre or in a hotel, check to see if the machine has a buildup of biofilm around the opening. It will look slime-like and range in colour from yellow to brown.

    “Unfortunately, these ice machines don’t get cleaned very often,” he says.

    All three coffee chains responded to the BBC study to say they will be reevaluating their ice-making and handling procedures.

    In a statement to Global News, a Starbucks Canada spokesperson said: “We take hygiene and cleanliness extremely seriously. We have moved quickly to conduct our own investigation into the claims about the stores you have identified. All employees nationwide have received updated training on our high standards of hygiene including ice handling. Nothing is more important to us than the safety of our customers.”

      Thanks for the info. I wonder about the bottled Frappuccino they sell in grocery stores.

      • ladywarrior

        If you have to “wonder” then my policy is don’t do it. I quit them also….better safe than sorry.

        • IzlamIsTyranny

          LOL, really.

      Lovely news. I guess I’ll have my drinks hot please, boiling hot.

  • Jackie Puppet

    I tried their overpriced swill a couple decades ago, and found it very bitter. Not to mention all I wanted was coffee, and it felt like I needed a pocket english-italian dictionary to translate. And this was before they got real political, too.

    Although Dunkin’ Donuts’ coffee may not be much better – I worked there once with a bunch of wacky Pakis/Sri Lankans/Indians – their sanitation left much to be desired.

  • Scott Wallace

    I am a Statistician who has worked in Public Health. The screening of immigrants for tuberculosis is one of the most corrupt things our government has done. First MDs performed research to show that foreign screening methods were accurate (they’re not). But worse, you can buy a clean x-ray and sputum test in foreign countries- particularly- wait for it-Somalia. The net result is both latent and live TB is exploding in the US- particularly where Somalis live.. Before this we were the only country in the world with low levels. The government has quietly stopped making the numbers public. BTW Congress and the medical profession- particularly public health MDs are behind the faked research. Note: I was a statistician on the research and noticed that X-rays (they are scored) from different Somalis were remarkably similar. (one or two points off). This is not something you would expect. They were using the same X-ray and changing a couple of numbers. I left the program when I realized that my supervisors already knew. This research was to show that the Sputum test was accurate. (In Somalia you pay someone well to take it for you). You then come to the US and get free treatment- the US will not throw you out.

    • ladywarrior

      Excellent, informative post. It seems that the same people in the Muslim Marxist Obama’s regime that put out fake numbers on the mass con of Climate Change are alive and well in the health scam as well.

      The “infection” of Obama and his Minions into America will be hard to overcome and come back from…..it will take great resolve by the American people….or at least the ones who care about America.

      • spudmans1

        one or two generations for sure!

  • Speak the Truth

    The refugee/migrant resettlement contractors are lying when they claim anyone with active TB is denied entry into the US. It is a FACT that such people are spreading TB in their new communities and schools all across the US.

    It is also a FACT that our government officials are concealing the real risks, stats, etc.

  • Alleged Comment

    Drinking from Starbucks could be a HEALTH HAZARD. Not only can you get TB, but the price of their coffee will KILL YOU!

    • VoiceInDesert

      The non-brands I brew at home taste just fine, and it won’t kill my budget :-)

  • Darko Darryl Alan Birdsall-Koš

    Illy Coffee from Italy is the best in the world! It beats the Hell out of any cup from Starbuck’s. I’m not sure if you can easily buy ‘illy’ in the States, but if you can, just make your own cup of wonder at home!

    • GandalfsTrouserpress

      I find empty Illy tins very useful for storing other brands of coffee.
      Taylor’s Hot Lava Java or Lavazza.
      Turkish coffee is good too, shame about its origin.

  • GandalfsTrouserpress

    I like Italian expresso or home brewed Italian/Spanish beans.
    I never have coffee when I’m out.
    It’s always a disappointment and a waste of money and taste.
    With the added risk of bacteria and TB? – no thanks!

  • Political_qrm

    That’s why I stopped going to Starbucks and buying the coffee in the grocery store..,also the fact that Starbuck’s CEO doesn’t want people like me in his coffee shop… I don’t spend my money on people who despise me.

    • Dorrie

      I was absolutely sick to my stomach when a VERY good local coffee kiosk left our local Fred Meyer/Kroger store and Starbucks came in!

  • ladywarrior

    I quit going to Starbucks or buying their products several years ago when their “dhimmi” started showing early on. If all patriots and sane people would stop buying their products they would go broke because there are not enough “dhimmis” and Libtards to keep them going.

    • Dorrie

      I started boycotting Starbucks when they made their coffee shops GUN-FREE ZONES! They’re too dangerous for THIS lady!!

    “The triggering mechanism to activate latent TB is not entirely understood, but high levels of stress, crowded living situations, poor public health practices, the presence of other diseases that lower the immune system, and behavioral conduct–such as smoking–appear to increase the chances of activation.”
    Don’t forget the many GMO foods and drinks, vaccinations, radiation from Fukushima, etc.
    Makes me wonder if California is going to be the state, for where the first MAJOR disease will come from, and spread from there. Ideas to get healthy, are…eat and drink as much organics as you can (stop drinking sodas, and juice), grow as much organic food as you can, take organic vitamins and minerals, read and learn about organics, which organic companies are lying, and which ones care about people, go to thrivemarket.com to buy your organics. My Harris Teeter store has organics throughout the store, and so many people are jumping on the organic bandwagon, that Walmart, and Target are selling them. Get healthy!

    As usual, the left with it’s Grand gestures of humanity without thinking about the consequences. But, with them it’s not about the consequences, just that they feel better about themselves.

  • enubus

    I suspect that mostly limousine liberals and elitists on the left get coffee from Starbucks and have never been vaccinated for TB. Hopefully, they will contract the highly contagious disease and give it to all their family and leftist friends. Problem solved with the leftists taking over CA.

    • Dorrie

      That would definitely be JUSTICE, but it’s doubtful that it will happen.

      • enubus

        Tempting fate is always an unwise idea, but I just love the possible irony and karmic implications.
