WINFIELD — A Berkeley Springs couple is suing Taco Bell, alleging negligence caused the husband to become ill.
Warren Jackson and Glynns Cosner filed a complaint in Putnam Circuit Court against Charter Central LLC, doing business with the trade name Taco Bell, alleging failure to serve food that was safe for human consumption.
According to the complaint, on May 25, Jackson purchased a Mexican pizza, burrito supreme and cinnamon twists from the Taco Bell restaurant in Hurricane for $9.19. The suit says, as a result of the defendant's negligence, Jackson suffered infection with a hepatitis A virus. He said he sustained pain and suffering, metal anguish, medical expenses and lost earnings.
The plaintiffs alleges Charter Central negligently prepared and sold food that was defective, unreasonably safe and was contaminated with the hepatitis A virus.
Jackson and Cosner seek trial by jury, damages to fairly and fully compensate them for their damages, plus interest. They are represented by attorneys Harvey D. Peyton and Thomas H. Peyton of The Peyton Law Firm PLLC in Nitro.
