FLORIDA: A Florida man is suing McDonald’s for over a million dollars after allegedly chipping a tooth on a chicken McNugget.
The man, Alexei Stolfat, received his food from Uber Eats from a West Palm Beach McDonald’s, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported.
He said he felt pain in his mouth and suffered from headaches for three days after biting into a bone in one of the chicken nuggets.
Stolfat reportedly discovered that his tooth was cracked in two places and would require surgery.
A representative from McDonald’s could not provide further comment, but a spokesperson for the chain responded to the Sun-Sentinel.
“Providing safe, high-quality food is always a top priority,” McDonald’s said. “We take these claims seriously but as this is pending litigation, we cannot comment further at this time.”
Stolfat said he is seeking $1.1 million dollars and a recall of all McNuggets “to avoid massive consumer injuries.”
He said if he wins the legal battle, he will donate $1 million to charity.
