In the strange-lawsuits department comes this from Texas: A woman is suing Chick-fil-A because she says one of the chain’s cherry-topped milkshakes gave her a heart attack, reports the Houston Chronicle.
Cyndi Scruggs purchased the shake from a location in McKinney, near Plano, on May 10. But when she put the maraschino cherry into her mouth, she discovered that it had not been “properly de-pitted,” as the legalese of her petition states.
When Scruggs chomped down on the pit, she fractured two teeth below the gumline. That led to gum infection and sepsis, which in turn led to a heart attack, according to her lawsuit.
