8.3 million? Yeah, in the US you'd have advocacy groups biatching that that isn't enough.

So they'll market it to teenage boys and say "Do you dare take on the Xtreme Wrap?"

The court was told that Monika was in a coma for six months after she, her parents and brother fell ill with vomiting and diarrhoea after sharing the wrap...

That's diarrhea with an "O." You know that must be serious.

Came to say, "That's a wrap," but that will have to wait until after the appeal.

KFC have to date been determined that Monika does not receive a cent.

I have been determined that sentence makes no sense.

Do people really believe that fast food joints with teenagers running them are a safe place to eat? LOL Maybe since the whole family shared the wrap they got the germs from each other.

It is serious. It means that the 'O' is the diameter of hole you could shiat through.

That particular bacteria does not grow in humans naturally. It has a tenancy to to cause diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fever, headache, blood in stool and even typhoid fever if the bacteria is the right variety. Typhoid is pretty nasty and causes a fever of 103 FO or higher. The kind of fever that causes brain damage. Basic cooking practices would have killed the bacteria or even prevented it from getting in the food to begin with.

\I hope they named the actual restaurant franchise owner in the suit too since they were the ones running a death kitchen
\\KFC is just as guilty for not inspecting it enough as the Colonel said they needed to.

Co-workers of mine had this issue with Popeyes (which makes me weep because I LOVE their fries):

A co-worker ordered a bit they did not get.... they took a bite, found that it wasn't what they asked for and returned it immediately. While they did get a replacement item, they saw that the rice they ATE AND RETURNED was put back into the mix of items getting served to others.

From personal experience: Salisbury fast food.... make it yourself.... no one gives a toss if you life or die.... the time waite is ...... I'd rather give birth.. it would be faster....and cleaner.

There was no proof that they had eaten at KFC before becoming ill and they never mentioned eating at KFC when they were at the hospital being treated. As somebody has also pointed out, four people sharing one sandwich that isn't even a meal for one, sounds very unbelievable.

I think it's more unbelievable that more people don't get food poisoning from these places to be quite honest. When you pay people minimum wage and put them in a position of responsibility over other people's health, it shouldn't be surprising that the fark giving meter is running on E.

You know, it is possible that a company isn't infallible. It's ok to admit this, it doesn't make you a socialist.
 
2012-04-28 05:39:01 AM
You know, does everything have to result in a lawsuit? If KFC was negligent and literally (or even *actually*) served them knowingly undercooked food, then sure. But, as humans we face a microbial threat from virtually everything we do, and salmonella is no exception. Why not just sue god and cut out the middleman? Sometimes tragedies happen, unfortunately, but grief shouldn't take the form of a call to a lawyer.
 
2012-04-28 06:02:14 AM
They probably poisoned themselves some other way and are blaming KFC.

The entire family shared a little wrap..?

And it happened to be the ONLY thing found to have samonella? No one else ever got sick? No trace back?

Highly suspicious, but Australia is not a business friendly country.
 
2012-04-28 06:10:00 AM
When I worked at a pizza joint, I had a problem with a new girl. Twice I caught her grabbing a knife from the salad table to cut raw pork sausage and then put the knife back on the salad table. Each time I hustled the knife to the sink in back, tore down the salad table and sterilized it. She complained up the line about my quiet but stern talk about how what she did could cost everyone their jobs. She didn't last very long after that. I wonder how many outbreaks of food poisoning she eventually caused.

Later there was case in which a delivery customer complained she got food poisoning last time she ordered from us. Given the squalor I saw through her front door, it was pretty clear where the food poisoning really came from.

FTA: "The family's lawyer told the court that at busy times, the restaurant would reuse chicken that had been dropped on the floor."

How in the hell does that meet the legal requirement when it comes to burden of proof? I should sue in Australia and have my lawyer simply give his word that the defendant is at fault.

Just another reason I don't eat fast food.

Buffet: Just another reason I don't eat fast food.


There is a set of paranoia about fast food that always sets in. I am not baiting or anything but I do want to get into peoples heads about why they do not do X. So what keeps you from fast food? I have lurked on this site for some time and enjoy it, posting has brought some cool advantages.

I do find myself eating fast food more often than what should be healthy and even though it is anecdotal I have never been sick from eating at a joint. I am pretty boring when it comes to food itself, I do cook, but when I am bored I stop by the drive through. Anecdotal again, but I am 6ft 1in and 164lbs, and am healthy enough to work, but not at all "in good shape". This has been one hell of a good thread.

Indeed. I'm sorry but a company the size of Yum! is biatching about £8mil AUS? To help a family who's daughter who one of their products, allegedly, left with brain damage. Just give them $5mil AUS, spin it as a "we can't be certain of legal culpability but we feel morally obliged to help. We're also instigating new, more stringent H&S guidelines at all corporate stores and franchise locations." then just run around changing the air scent so it smells vuagley of bleach.

I have to run off to "work" too soon to properly rant this one out.

1. What else was wrong with this person to make them so susceptible to something most people shrug off after a day or two?
2. Isn't the meat for the wraps cooked before it arrives at the store?
3. Doesn't Australia have health inspectors?
4. Does Australia have the "loser pays" model where the one bringing suit is responsible for the legal expenses of the other side if they don't win the law suit?

The McDonalds' (we have more than one), Taco Bell and Burger King in my neighborhood are all spotlessly immaculate and efficiently run.

The KFC by me is farking FILTHY, and you can see water and filth all over the floor in the kitchen. The workers there are also surly and disinterested. I walked in once, took a look at how nasty the place was - including in the kitchen - and walked out without ordering. Went back a few months later and it was the same, so I walked out without ordering again and never went back. That was like a year ago, and fark if I'll be going back again. I don't know what it is about KFC, but it's the only restaurant around here like that.
 
2012-04-28 09:32:11 AM
If the restaurant really was negligent then I'm all for this but salmonella is farking everywhere and there is no way to prevent it 100% of the time so it could be difficult to say where it came from. Maybe the whole family had it on their hands/cloths/whatever before they even went into the restaurant.

My questions are: Did they wash their hands before they ate? Did anyone else at the restaurant that day get sick?
 
2012-04-28 09:53:26 AM
I've gotten salmonella at least seven times now. Stupid college meal plan.

I would think the odds of getting salmonella at KFC to be almost nil. The disease comes from uncooked or undercooked chicken and eggs, and raw unwashed vegatables. The food comes to KFC precooked. Where would it come from? If it were E. coli it would be a lot more understandable.

Denny's and Mongolian barbequeue. You ever want to get salmonella, try those places.

No it doesn't come precooked. When the chickens are slaughtered at the plant, some are injected with whatever flavor base each company requires, then shipped in large boxes to the franchises. They are coated and fried on site. While eggs are being vilified, the chances of getting salmonella from them are almost 1000 to 1, if better lower. Same thing for vegetables, but you must WASH them before you use them. The biggest problem with vegetables is workers using the field as their own personal toilet.

I gotta say, these two things kinda jumped out at me too. If there was a contamination problem, a lot more than one dinky little chicken wrap should have been affected.

And those dinky little chicken wraps are barely enough for one person. MAYBE two if they're both not at all hungry.

the defendant's lawyer then told the courts that the family regularly had felching sessions during which they would tongue each others assholes.

/oh yea and I never eat fast food and last time I drove by a McDonald's I looked at the yellow arches and began vomiting violently.
