PHILADELPHIA – A plaintiff who alleges the potato soup he ordered at Longhorn Steakhouse made him seriously ill has filed suit against the popular restaurant chain for negligence.
James Green of Philadelphia filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Sept. 12 versus Longhorn Steakhouse, also of Philadelphia.
Green claims he visited the Longhorn Steakhouse located on Christopher Columbus Boulevard in Philadelphia on Sept. 24, 2016, when he ordered potato soup. Green added the soup was served with “an unknown foreign object” in it, which caused him “serious and severe bodily injuries” and to become ill with nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and gastroenteritis.
Green alleges Longhorn Steakhouse prepared his food negligently by not ensuring the soup was free of foreign objects, failing to maintain cleanliness of the restaurant premises and through its negligent hiring and lack of supervision of its agents, servants, workmen and/or employees, among other charges.
For a lone count of negligence, the plaintiff is seeking damages not in excess of $50,000, plus attorney’s fees, costs and expenditures, sums, delay damages, Philadelphia Rule of Civil Procedure 212 damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, and any further relief as is just and appropriate.
The plaintiff is represented by Leonard V. Fodera of Fodera & Long, in Philadelphia.
