USA: Wendy’s sandwich “exploded” says woman in lawsuit

Mitzi Pumphrey was in court last weekend to demand no less than US$25,000 in compensation from Wendy’s quick service restaurant chain, claiming that she suffered severe burns when a chicken sandwich purchased at the company “exploded” onto her face and hands. The Clyde, Ohio woman filed the suit in Sandusky County Common Pleas Court, and insisted that US$25,000 is a reasonable amount given the level of suffering inflicted on her and family by the exploding sandwich.

Mitzi Pumphrey was in court last weekend to demand no less than US$25,000 in compensation from Wendy’s quick service restaurant chain, claiming that she suffered severe burns when a chicken sandwich purchased at the company “exploded” onto her face and hands.

The Clyde, Ohio woman filed the suit in Sandusky County Common Pleas Court, and insisted that US$25,000 is a reasonable amount given the level of suffering inflicted on her and family by the exploding sandwich.

Her attorney, Samuel Bolotin, explained that there must have been a defect in the design of the chicken sandwich, and that the jury should make a judgment against Wendy’s because its employees failed to warn customers of the potential dangers involved in eating one.
