No 'pearls' in tea because of #AVA tests: We've been eating 'untested' food?
was surprised to learn today (Jun 15) that bubble tea 'pearls' were unavailable because they were "being tested by AVA", according to a staff member at KOI Cafe. The STOMPer wonders if this means that other food and drinks are being sold to the public without going through testing. "At 3.30pm today (Jun 15), I dropped by my favourite bubble tea shop and was surprised how short the queue was. "I quickly ordered my large tea with extra pearls. To my dismay, I was asked, 'no pearl can or not?' "So I asked how long I had to wait for the pearl and I was told the following: 'our pearls are currently being tested by AVA.' "I am dumbfounded! "Are you trying to say that, all these while we have been consuming food and drinks that have not gone through testing before they are sold to the public? "I am seriously keeping my fingers crossed now."
