PHILADELPHIA – A Philadelphia man who alleges he was injured when he bit down on a metal button hidden in his mashed potatoes has filed litigation against the West Oak Lane neighborhood restaurant in which the accident took place.
Savoy Grant filed suit on Feb. 21 in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas, versus Sadiki’s Restaurant, Inc. and 7152 Relish Enterprises, Inc. (doing business as Relish Southern Cuisine and Relish), both of Philadelphia.
“On or about April 23, 2016, plaintiff was a business invitee of defendants’ restaurant. On or about April 23, 2016, plaintiff received his entrée of salmon and mashed potatoes and as he was eating his mashed potatoes, he felt a hard object which after spitting it out learned that it was a metal button causing him serious injuries which are set forth at length herein,” the lawsuit alleges.
The suit claims the defendants failed to provide a safe environment for its patrons, failed to properly prepare its food for patrons, allowed foreign objects in its food, failed to inspect its food for foreign objects and negligently prepared its food for patrons.
The plaintiff adds the defendants’ negligence caused him to suffer fractured restoration of tooth No. 19, No. 19 irreversible pulpitis, No. 30 non-restorable tooth, pain in teeth Nos. 18, 19, 20 and 30, vomiting, nausea and disfigurement.
The plaintiff is seeking damages in a sum not in excess of the amount required to be classified as a major case in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, in this matter.
The plaintiff is represented by Kenneth M. Rodgers in Philadelphia.
