LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4)– The 7-Eleven store in Lakewood blamed for cleaning their coffee urns with a cleanser before making coffee and serving it to customers is denying one man’s claims.
Dave Dugan says his cup of coffee from the 7-Eleven store at 14th Avenue and Carr Street had a chlorine cleanser in it.
“As soon as I started drinking the coffee … all my taste buds turned numb and my lips started to burn and I had heartburn all in my chest,” Dugan said.
Dugan is posting warning signs around the neighborhood to let others know that he thinks the staff at the store cleaned the coffee maker with a powerful cleanser called Patco 155 and didn’t thoroughly rinse it before making more coffee. He said the store manager is the one who told him about the cleaner.
The 7-Eleven franchisee said the Jefferson County Health Department found no evidence his coffee made Dugan sick.
He said, “The coffee urns were not cleaned with any kind of cleanser within 24 hours of Mr. Dugan’s visit.”
He also told CBS4 he is proud of the coffee his store serves guests everyday.
