Chicken bone suit set for trial in Fairfield

By From page A3 | May 03, 2014

FAIRFIELD — An Oct. 6 trial is set for the lawsuit filed by a man who says he had a large chicken bone stuck in his throat when eating Popcorn Chicken at his Solano County home.

Peter Makras said he ate the packaged, bite-sized Foster Farms product after buying the product in May 2012. He was able to dislodge the bone but his throat was irritated and is painful to this day, according to a Dec. 13 filing in Solano County Superior Court.

The parties are trying to settle the case, states a March 26 court filing.

A Foster Farms representative said Friday that the company can’t discuss pending legal matters.

    So this man put a popcorn chicken in his mouth, chewed on this piece of meat, never noticing a bone, then swallows this food and the bone gets stuck in his throat? The result was an irritated throat? Smells like a fraud case to me. Someone out there is always waiting for the opportunity to get paid. Sad society we have.
