A Florida man is not lovin’ the dental agony he claims he suffered after biting into a McDonald’s Chicken McNugget, according to a report.
Alexei Stolfat of West Palm Beach says in a federal lawsuit against the fast-food giant that he felt “unbearable” pain when he bit into a bone in the chicken, which he ordered via Uber Eats in May, the Sun-Sentinel reported.
According to the lawsuit, Stolfat’s dentist found his tooth cracked in two places — requiring an extraction, root canal and dental implant surgery.
He is seeking $1.1 million and a recall of all McNuggets “to avoid massive consumer injuries,” the newspaper reported — and is pledging to donate $1 million to charities if he prevails, the paper reported.
Stolfat filed the suit on his own using knowledge he gained in his native Estonia, where he worked as a jurist, which is the rough equivalent of a paralegal in the US, according to the report.
He said he hasn’t had his broken tooth removed yet because it’s proof of his injury.
“Providing safe, high quality food is always a top priority. We take these claims seriously but as this is pending litigation, we cannot comment further at this time,” McDonald’s said in a statement.
