    Man Finds Skin in Arby's Sandwich

    Good Lord... here we go again.

    Man sues Arby's restaurant, claiming he found skin on sandwich


    DAYTON, Ohio (AP) A man is suing a fast-food restaurant operator for more than $50,000, claiming he found a slice of skin on his chicken sandwich.
    David Scheiding filed the lawsuit in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court on April 1 after rejecting a settlement offer from GZK Inc., his lawyer said. GZK owns the Arby's restaurant in Tipp City where he bought the sandwich.
    Scheiding said he realized something wasn't right when he bit into the sandwich on June 18 and found a piece of flesh about three-fourths of an inch long.
    "It looked like I was seeing fingerprints on it," he said. "I got sick and went to the bathroom." E-mail | Print
    Miami County health investigators talked to the restaurant manager, who had a bandage on his right thumb and wore a latex glove, according to a health district report. The manager said he sliced skin from the thumb while shredding lettuce, and sanitized the area but didn't throw away the bin of lettuce, the report said. Scheiding's sandwich contained lettuce.
    "Why wasn't the food searched, and why wasn't it thrown away?" said Scheiding's lawyer, Hank Hyde.
    Christine Koeller, vice president of marketing and communications with GZK, said what happened was unintentional.
    "(The manager) did destroy product that was in and around the slicer immediately, and did everything that he thought was appropriate to do," Koeller said.

    Poor guy. Probably really deserves a big $ lawsuit due to negligience on the employee's part which the corporation is liable for. Kind of cuts like a knife.

    If there was any blood on that epidermis it sure as heck would bother me, in this age of AIDS.
