Cafe Amazon shop closed after unknown substance found in drink


BANGKOK — One Cafe Amazon shop in Bangkok has temporarily ceased operation after a customer complained of an unknown substance found in the drinks.

The immediate temporary closure of an outlet at GMM Grammy Place Building on Asoke Road was announced on Wednesday so that all equipment could be sanitized.

Franchise owner PTT Oil and Retail Co, a business arm of PTT Plc. made the announcement, but no reopening date was mentioned.

According to Facebook user Sarawut Kirtiwasin, he ordered two cups iced chocolate to go at the said outlet at GMM Grammy Place Building. But to his horror, a small amount of hard crystals were in the drink. His video, which he posted on social media, has since gone viral.

“Will we survive tonight?” he said in his post.

Cafe Amazon as reported by Bangkok Post, responded on its Facebook account on Wednesday night. The post said that the small, crystal-looking objects found in the drink were due to a container used to supply ice to the shop being substandard.

The icemaker, whose name was not disclosed, had promised to ensure all production processes met with the required standards, the report added.

It did not say what the hard crystals found by the customers were.

The customer also demanded to know, were they harmful if he swallowed them?
