WAYNE -- A Wayne County woman is suing Pilgrim's Pride Corporation after she claims she became violently ill after eating its chicken product.
On Jan. 22, 2009, Judith Curry purchased a package of seasoned chicken wings at a Wal-mart store in Wayne County that were made by the defendant, according to a complaint filed March 18 in Wayne Circuit Court.
Curry claims after eating a portion of the chicken product, she became violently ill and was transported to the hospital, where she stayed for approximately three days.
The Pilgrim's Pride package containing the chicken wings stated that they were "precooked," it was apparent that the wings were raw and non precooked and/or otherwise unfit for human consumption, according to the suit.
Curry claims the defendant owed a duty to provide products fit for consumption and not likely to cause illness.
The defendant was negligent in allowing Curry to become ill from eating its product, according to the suit.
Curry is seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. She is being represented by Scott Stapleton and Mark C. Brodeur.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge James H. Young Jr.
