Whatever the reason, it doesn’t excuse serving customers with such a contaminated beverage.

Hope woman receives compensation for contaminated drink

The experience of finding the metal piece in her BBT drink must have been unpleasant for the woman.

More worryingly, the situation could have turned out worse if she had been slightly more careless and swallowed the piece.

Hopefully, the woman will receive some form of compensation for her ordeal.

Such an incident also serves as a timely reminder for us to always exercise caution when consuming any meal or drink.
