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.
