WAYNE – A Wayne woman is suing Giovanni's of Wayne after she claims she injured her mouth when eating at the restaurant.
On Jan. 31, Courtney Carrico ordered a sandwich from the defendant and when she bit into it, she felt a sharp, stabbing sensation in her mouth, according to a complaint filed Sept. 25 in Wayne Circuit Court.
Carrico claims when she removed the sandwich, she noticed a black, rusted staple lodged into the meat.
Due to the staple being rusty, Carrico had to visit her physician to get a tetanus shot.
Carrico claims the defendant was negligent and breached its duty owed to her by failing to make sure nothing of harm was in its products and by other acts and omissions.
The defendant breached its duty owed to Carrico and she had to endure physical pain and suffered substantial annoyance, aggravation and inconvenience, according to the suit.
Carrico is seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. She is being represented by Donald R. Jarrell.
The case is assigned to Circuit Judge James H. Young Jr.
