    Man sues after biting into a greasy hot onion ring

    If you thought White Castle's Slyders are tough on your body, wait till you try the onion rings, according to a lawsuit that calls the rings "unreasonably dangerous."

    Michael Strauss, of Chicago, filed suit on Wednesday against the burger company, alleging he suffered "great pain and anguish in mind and body" when he bit into an onion ring two years ago and "scalding hot grease splattered out and onto" his arm, "scalding and severely burning him."

    Strauss wants more than $50,000 for the "severe and permanent injuries" he suffered after ordering White Castle "onion rings that were in an unreasonably dangerous and defective condition."

    Neither Strauss nor his Chicago attorney, Janine Rosana, could be reached for comment Wednesday.

    Strauss claims the incident happened in October 2002 after he purchased onion rings from the White Castle in Bourbonnais.

    In alleging six counts of negligence, Strauss said "White Castle has a duty . . . not to sell food to the general public which is too hot for consumption." Since the incident, Strauss claims, he's had to pay "large sums for medical care."
