BREAKING NEWS – West Palm Beach, Florida – A McDonald’s customer is suing the company after he says he was hurt biting into a Chicken McNugget. The man claims he cracked one of his teeth on a piece of bone inside one of the nuggets.
Alexei Stolfat is suing McDonald’s for $1.1 million and is calling for a recall of all McNuggets, the Sun-Sentinel reports. He ordered the food through Uber Eats from a West Palm Beach restaurant.
Stolfat says he felt pain in his mouth and suffered headaches for three days after biting into the bone. After going to the dentist, he reportedly discovered that his tooth was cracked in two places and would need surgery to replace it. A representative of McDonald’s stated that Stolfat is not telling the entire truth. The fast food chain admitted to the bone being in the food, but they also stated that Stolfat assumed the risk, because what he actually ordered was their newest item called “Chicken McKuckles”.
