A Starbucks barista was fired for eating an "expired" plastic-wrapped sandwich that had been thrown away.

Coulson Loptmann, 21, says he was fired from Seattle Starbucks for eating an "expired" plastic-wrap sandwich that had been tossed into the dumpster. "I hadn't eaten all day and I was on a seven-hour shift," he says. Loptmann (on the right) was later told by his boss that what he did was considered stealing, "so I’m sorry, but I have to terminate you." A Starbucks spokesman won't discuss Loptmann's case, but says “it is a violation of our policy to consume marked-out products." Loptmann, who collected food stamps because he couldn't make ends meet at SBUX, says: "I understand completely they don’t want someone to mark something out just to eat it. I didn’t mark it out, someone else did." * Starbucks fires a barista for eating a sandwich from the garbage
