Woman finds tooth in breakfast sandwich
February 3, 2009 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Jennifer Napolitano got her Dunkin' Donuts sandwich with a special ingredient: a human tooth.
Napolitano claims in a lawsuit Monday she found the tooth inside a breakfast sandwich she purchased at a Dunkin' Donuts in St. Charles on Feb. 2, 2007.
Napalitano is suing Sankar Rahim, Dunkin' Donuts, Manu Patel, Pushpa Patel, Ranjan Mawkwana, Gold Coast Foods, Third Dunkin Donuts Realty, Michael Foods, Odom's Tennessee Pride Sausage, Baskin-Robbins, and the Chicagoland Commissary.
The 16-count negligence suit claims the defendants failed to have proper procedures for food safety, failed to follow the Illinois Public Health Code, and failed to prevent a human tooth from ending up in a customer's sandwich.
Napalitano "suffered great pain and aguish, both in mind and body, and in the future continues to suffer," the suit said.
The sandwich was purchased at a Dunkin Donuts at 1711 W. Maine St. in St. Charles.
