Jury: $2.5 million for SF woman who choked on chicken bone

Thursday, May 3, 2012

A jury has awarded a $2.5 million judgment to a San Francisco woman severely injured after choking on a chicken bone at a Round Table pizza restaurant in South San Francisco. The jury in Martinez found chicken producer Foster Farms 60 percent negligent, and the Round Table franchisee where the incident occurred 40 percent negligent. From Malaika Fraley at the Contra Costa Times:
Calla Felicity, 59, and her mother were eating a barbecue chicken pizza at the Gellert Boulevard restaurant on Feb. 13, 2010, when a 1.2-inch chicken bone became lodged in Felicity's throat. The bone, a splinter with pointed sides like a toothpick, bilaterally pierced her esophagus, causing an infected rupture that nearly killed her.
