Woman says she found rodent in Chick-fil-A sandwich

Dead Rodent Baked Into Bucks County Woman's Chick-fil-A Bun, Lawsuit Alleges

A woman filed a lawsuit against Chick-fil-A last week over a November incident in which she was served a sandwich with a rodent baked into the bun.

The 46-year-old woman in question, Ellen Manfalouti, says she "felt something amusing on the bottom of the bun", while biting into what should have been a routine lunch last November.

"I could see the whiskers and the tail", the coworker said. Manfalouti's lawyer says the owner of the Langhorne location were unresponsive to her complaints.

Davis said that corporate tried to push the blame onto Heffernan's franchise, who in turn faulted the bakery that supplies the buns. The suit claims the store's actions "was a direct cause" for Manfalouti's injuries.

That's when she discovered what was actually in the sandwich.

In published reports, the franchisee says they will not comment on an ongoing allegation and investigation.


Additionally, Manfalouti is seeking punitive and compensatory damages for "pain, suffering, emotional distress, sleeplessness, anxiety, PTSD" and medical costs.

James Kwon told his career coach Chick-fil-A expressed disinterest in his addition to their restaurant suggesting that those 'with disabilities would not be able to succeed'.

This isn't the first time Chick-fil-A has faced a lawsuit.

The lawsuit stated that Kwon previously worked within restaurant businesses and was an asset to the companies. His former boss was cited in the lawsuit, saying Kwon performed his duties "diligently and capably".

Chick-fil-A has since denied the allegations brought against them. Our restaurant does not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities.
