MEDIA - Three individuals are suing Uno Pizzeria & Grill and TJB of Newtown Square LLC, citing alleged breach of implied warranty of merchantability, loss of consortium, negligence and strict liability.
Husband and wife Thomas Hewlett and Denice Hewlett, as well as Cassandra Hewlett, filed a complaint July 5 in the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas, alleging that the defendants failed to follow applicable safety guidelines and regulations.
According to the complaint, Thomas Hewlett and Cassandra Hewlett contracted Campylobacter and complications after eating a chicken salad that was sold by the defendants at their restaurant.
The Hewletts said Uno and TJB should be held responsible because they allegedly failed to warn patrons that the food being sold may contain bacteria, failed to ensure the purity and safety of their food and failed to properly inspect and maintain the chicken salad before serving it.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek a judgment in an amount in excess of $50,000, plus costs and interest. They are represented by Murray Greenfield and Michael McCartin of Murray L. Greenfield and Associates in Philadelphia.
