A Bum Wrap? Lawsuit Pits Kucinich Against Capitol Cafeteria
Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D., Ohio) is asking for $150,000 in damages from a food service company operating a Capitol cafeteria. The one-time presidential candidate alleges he was sold a wrap with a hidden olive pit.
The suit filed in D.C. superior court alleges that Kucinich bought the suspicious sandwich wrap “on or about April 17, 2008,” and eating it caused “permanent dental and oral injuries requiring multiple surgical and dental procedures.”
“Said sandwich wrap was unwholesome and unfit for human consumption in that it was presented to contain pitted olives, yet unknown to plaintiff, contained an unpitted olive or olives which plaintiff did not reasonably expect to be in the food prepared for him, and could not visually detect prior to consumption,” the lawsuit said.
