    What are some of the restaurants that have had a foreign object in food lawsuit filed against them?

    Some of the eateries that have had lawsuits filed against them include Burger King, Chipotle, McDonald’s, In-N-Out Burger, Rally’s, Jack in the Box, Panda Express, Chick-Fil-A, Wendy’s, Denny’s, Subway, Domino’s, Pizza Hut, Wingstop, Fatburger, El Pollo Loco, Carl’s Jr, Taco Bell, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Five Guys, and Del Taco. Of course, there are multiple locations for each company, and one location may be enough to garner a bad reputation for the entire chain.

    In addition to restaurants, grocery stores have been targeted in lawsuits as well. Although some food comes prepared and is merely stocked by the grocery store, there are other items and meals that are made fresh at the location. If you found a foreign object in your sandwich or found something in your sandwich after it was made by the workers at the deli counter, you should take legal action.

    A few of the grocery stores that have been hit with lawsuits include Albertsons, Costco, Food 4 Less, Foodsco, Safeway, Save Mart Supermarket, Smart & Final, State Bros, Super A Foods, Vons, Vallarta Supermarket, Wal-Mart Supercenter, Target, Whole Foods, Pavilions, Mission Foods, Holiday Quality Foods, Target, El Super, and Trader Joe’s.

    If you have found a foreign object in your food from any establishment, be sure to contact our law group to take legal action.

    What are some types of foreign objects in food?

    There have been numerous types of foreign objects found in food, ranging from pieces of silverware to debris to animal parts to garbage. There are many ways these objects can contaminate food; they may have been dropped by restaurant workers preparing the meals, or something may have fallen into a shipment. It’s even possible that the animal could have had an object inside of it already.

    A few examples of objects are as follows:

    • Glass
    • Nail
    • Screw
    • Fingernail
    • Band-Aid
    • Jewelry
    • A Ring
    • Pebble
    • Piece of Metal
    • Piece of Plastic
    • Bones
    • Wires
    • Coin
    • Cherry Pit
    • Spoon
    • Rocks
    • Rodent
    • Feces
    • Hair
    • Pen
    • Staples
    • Human Fingers

    The more disgusting and potentially harmful the object, the higher chance you’ll receive a larger amount of compensation. Some objects can cause widespread damage; for example, a dead or rotting animal present in food could be linked to an outbreak of sickness, leading to numerous lawsuits.

    How do foreign objects in food cause injuries?

    There are numerous types of injuries from a foreign object in your food. Some can be debilitating, especially if there is a high level of contamination or if you have an allergic reaction.

    If you bite into a meal that has something metal or plastic in it, you could very easily hurt yourself. If you broke your tooth or multiple teeth on a meal, a lawsuit would be able to help you have the damages covered. Small items could cause your teeth to get chipped or cracked, especially if you take a large, powerful bite.

    A bite can result in mouth injuries, tongue damage, gum damage, cuts and lacerations, and much more.

    Additionally, you could have choked on a small object. Choking is a dangerous side effect and can result in death, especially with small children. Equally as dangerous is swallowing an object; in some cases, swallowing an object has caused sickness and digestion problems, which could affect your stomach and other organs.

    You should contact a foreign object in food attorney in Sacramento if you found something in your food and got hurt from eating it.

    What are the legal requirements to file a lawsuit against a restaurant?

    In order to take legal action, you must be able to show that the restaurant owed you a duty of care and it breached it by providing you with contaminated or tainted food. Further, the breach must have caused an incident and physical harm to your body. If you were not hurt, you would not be eligible to file a personal injury claim.

    In choosing to file a product liability claim against a grocery store, you could point to one of th three causes of defects – whether in the design, which would not hold up or be a valid reason; in the lack of a warning label, which also would not hold up because there should be no objects in the first place that would require a warning; or in the manufacturing of the product, during which point numerous items could have fallen into the food.

    If you need a Sacramento attorney to sue the restaurant for a foreign object in your food, contact our law group. We’ll gladly give you more information on what is needed to take legal action.

    What can I receive from a lawsuit?

    A claim against a restaurant for a foreign object in your food can land you various types of compensation. Your medical bills from the past and the future can be covered, and if you missed work because of your injuries, your lost wages could be reimbursed. Further, if you must miss work in the future because of medical treatment or because you’ll be recovering from injuries, you could receive those future amounts of income.

    Additionally, the emotional pain and suffering that you underwent could be compensated. The chances of fear, anxiety, PTSD, and other psychological traumas are high if you went through such an ordeal as a foreign object in your food. It may cause you to not want to eat anywhere outside again or it may trigger panic attacks when you’re near the restaurant or food.
