Starbucks Just Abruptly Pulled This Menu Item Off the Market — Eat This Not That


Starbucks has been a leader in the coffee industry for decades, and its menu items have become a staple for many coffee lovers. However, the company recently made the decision to abruptly pull one of its menu items off the market. This article will discuss why Starbucks pulled the item and what customers can do to find an alternative. We will also provide some tips on how to make sure you don’t miss out on any of your favorite Starbucks menu items in the future.

Starbucks Just Abruptly Pulled This Menu Item Off the Market

Starbucks has just abruptly pulled one of its most popular menu items off the market. The coffee giant has decided to discontinue its beloved Sous Vide Egg Bites, which were a breakfast favorite for many customers.

The egg bites were made with cage-free eggs, Monterey Jack cheese, and a variety of other ingredients, and were served in a convenient two-pack. They were a popular choice for customers looking for a quick and easy breakfast option.

Starbucks has not yet given an official reason for the sudden discontinuation of the egg bites, but it is likely due to the fact that the company is focusing on healthier options. The egg bites were high in calories and fat, and the company is likely looking to offer more nutritious options.

If you’re looking for a healthier breakfast option, Starbucks still offers a variety of other items, including oatmeal, yogurt, and breakfast sandwiches. There are also plenty of other breakfast options available at other restaurants and cafes.

It’s always sad to see a beloved menu item go, but Starbucks is likely making the right decision by focusing on healthier options. While the egg bites may be gone, there are still plenty of other delicious breakfast options available.

Coffee giant Starbucks is eighty-sixing an item that just recently made its debut on nationwide menus. While the reasons are somewhat murky and the company seems to be brushing it off as just a run-of-the-mill business decision, reports of sickened customers have begun to emerge.

According to NBC News, the chain has issued a voluntary “stop sell” of a recently released breakfast sandwich, saying the item didn’t meet its quality standards. The Chicken, Maple Butter & Egg Sandwich was launched on June 21 as part of Starbucks’ summer menu updates. But the company pulled it from menus only a few short days later on June 26.

And yes, while its premise may have been stale and its quality lacking—a review of the item on Bon Appétit called the sandwich “bland” and “beige”—the real reason behind the abrupt decision to nix the item before it even had a chance to take off may be more sinister.

As NBC reports,, a website that tracks self-reported food poisoning cases, had several recent complaints about the Starbucks breakfast sandwich. Customers from different parts of the country described the same symptoms of food poisoning after eating it: nausea, diarrhea, and in some cases vomiting.

A screenshot of what seems to be the chain’s internal recall notice has also been posted to the website. The e-mail shows Starbucks has ordered its locations to stop selling and dispose of any remaining sandwiches. “Do not donate,” the notice reads.

For its part, however, the company denies the move has anything to do with cases of food poisoning and says such decisions are hardly newsworthy.

“The quality issue that was identified by Starbucks would not lead to food borne illness and any reports linking the stop sale to illness are inaccurate,” the company said in a statement to various outlets. Additionally, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not issued a recall of the item, according to Starbucks.

The company declined our request for further comment.
