A customer is suing the Chopt restaurant chain after claiming her salad included part of a human finger.
The lawsuit claims that a manager at a Mount Kisco, NY location had accidentally cut off part of her finger while chopping arugula, which was served to diners instead of being discarded. Allegedly, the manager did go to the hospital for treatment.
One of those diners claims that she realized partway through her salad that she was “chewing on a portion of a human finger” – suffering shock, nausea, panic attacks, and other conditions as a result.
Cozzi’s attorney said Tuesday that she does not want to comment further.
“My client has instructed me that she does not want any publicity. She is fearful that publicity will exacerbate her stress and her anxiety levels,” said attorney Marc Reibman.
The money the client is seeking was not specified. Chopt operates over 70 locations in 10 states.
