People have for years been finding ways to blame the food at McDonald’s for a variety of incidents, granted people have thought they have found things in the food from a razor sharp piece of plastic in a Chocolate Chip Cookie, kids coughing up condoms in the playland area.
But imagine that a sandwich you were craving stops you from doing what you love and that’s singing for the lord.
A gospel singer has sued McDonald’s, claiming her voice was ruined after she bit into a piece of glass while eating a chicken sandwich from the fast food chain, according to the New York Post.
A lawsuit filed Friday by Jacqueline Simpson, a 52-year-old clerk from Brooklyn, N.Y., says the sandwich with the glass inside came from a McDonald’s near the World Trade Center in May 2010 (yeah you read right 2010) . The Post writes that Simpson alleges in the documents her voice has since been “hoarse” and “rattly,” and she can no longer sing soprano. She also claims people have mistaken her for a man on the phone, per the Post.
Paul Goodman, owner and operator of multiple McDonald’s restaurants in Manhattan, said in an emailed statement on Tuesday that he plans to look into the incident.
“Rest assured I take these matters very seriously,” he said. “Providing safe food and beverages is a top priority at my restaurant. Upon learning about this claim, I took immediate action to gather the facts and began an investigation into the matter. As this is a pending legal matter, it would [be] inappropriate to comment further.”
Basically what he was saying was “Look we got grilled chicken, crispy chicken and now crunchy chicken. Just make sure you know what you order when its not on the Dollar Menu. Oh yeah we cater dinners for the church choir”
