Woman Says She'll Never Eat At Chick-Fil-A Again After Biting Into This

Fast food lovers should be warned: this story is enough to make you eat at home from now on. A woman from Pennsylvania was working and got a quick lunch at Chick-fil-A. As she bit into the sandwich at work, she immediately noticed something was wrong. A co-worker examined the sandwich for her, and found something disturbing in the bottom half of the bun: a small, dead rodent had been baked into it. The woman is now suing the restaurant for $50,000.

Ellen Manfalouti of Bucks county was in the conference room at work in November when she realized something was oddly crispy on the bottom of her bun. She thought the bread had been 'burned really bad', and mentioned it to a co-worker.

Co-worker Cara Phelan helped examine the sandwich, then noticed whiskers, and a tail. She was horrified as the realization dawned on her that it was a 'small rodent of some sort'.

Manfalouti told Philly.com, “I basically lost my mind. I screamed.”

Manfalouti claims that after she realized what was in her sandwich, she walked outside to get some air. She then returned and snapped photos of the dead mouse. She called the franchise and spoke to the owner.

“Oh, this can’t be good," Manfalouti says she remembers him saying after she sent him photos of the mouse, and the receipt.

The woman became sick and had to be rushed to the emergency room. She was hospitalized after the incident for extreme nausea, and doctors had to administer anti-nausea medications to her intravenously. She's had to be treated for anxiety over the incident. She also continues to suffer from nightmares about the traumatizing event.

“I had anxiety and nightmares, which I still do,” said the 46-year-old victim. “The first month was really rough.”

Manfalouti's lawyer sent the bun to a lab, and it confirmed a 'small rat/mouse' that was baked into the bottom of the bun. The woman is now suing Chick-fil-A for negligence for an amount over $50,000. According to the lawsuit, the company "failed to supervise employees who intentionally and/or knowingly served a sandwich to a customer with a dead rodent baked into the bun". They also "failed to have proper procedures in place to inspect their own food products before selling them to customers".

Franchise owner Dave Heffernan refuses to comment. "We're not going to make any comment about any allegations," he said. "It's an ongoing allegation and investigation."

An email with exact wording, attributed to Heffernan, came from Chick-fil-A corporate headquarters. Bill Davis, Manfalouti's attorney, filed a suit against the corporation as well. He claims that as they investigate and tried to get answers, they were continually ‘stonewalled’.

“The franchise itself has never said who supplied the buns for their sandwiches. I have given them every chance in the world to talk to me about it and give their side, but they just referred it to their insurance company, who in turn has not engaged in any real conversation,” said Davis.

The woman definitely didn't order this.
