Rosemary Thomas recently filed a lawsuit against the chain of fried chicken fast food restaurants Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen after she found a rat head in her chicken meal. The incident occurred at a Popeyes branch on West 145th Street in Albany, New York.
Thomas posted a picture of the chicken with the rat head on her Facebook page. She also mentioned that her daughter was hospitalized due to vomiting after eating there. New York personal injury lawyer Paul Aljouny has taken up Thomas’ case. He said during a press conference in his Long Island office on Thursday, September 15: “We’re going to allow them to take a part of the body to test it, but what are they going to find? It’s a rat. There’s nothing to test. There’s a head, arms, legs, and tail.” For her part, Popeyes spokeswoman Renee Kopkowski said the object is merely organ meat from a chicken.
