Starbucks is now the latest company reeling from an E. coli scare.

The company has recalled its holiday turkey paninis that have the potentially contaminated celery in its California, Oregon and Nevada locations.

This potential E. coli outbreak is the same one that's hit Costco, Walmart and Target.

The stuffing featured in Starbucks' sandwich contains the vegetable. Overall, the food scare has affected over 1,300 locations.

Many are watching how this will affect Starbucks' stock.

A different strain of E. coli caused Chipotle's stock to tumble 12 points before this Starbucks' health scare.
