Family Receives Compensation After Employee Urinated In Food


A family has won forty thousand dollars after filing a lawsuit in Cheyenne County District Court following an incident where they were served food at a restaurant and it was found to have been tainted by spit and urine from a Taco Bell employee.

The couple and their two young sons ate the food and the two boys apparently became very ill after eating it. They had to spend time in hospital with dehydration and gastroenteritis according to reports. Some workers had seen what the employee had done and had reported it to management.

The man whose family was served the food was a police officer. The lawsuit stated: “Employees maintained ‘special servings’ of food reserved for … officers. The ‘special servings’ had been urinated in or spit in by KFC/Taco Bell employees. In fact, defendant’s employees maintained a particular serving pan for use in creating ‘special servings’ of food plus employee urine.”

The employee in question was fined one hundred dollars last year after being found guilty of violating the Pure Food Act. He was eventually fired but this was due to missing work rather than over the incident according to reports.
