Yet Another Passenger Sues Virgin Australia Over Bad Chicken

You may remember this story about a woman suing Virgin Australia over distress to her unborn baby caused by tainted chicken. Now another passenger is suing over bad chicken:

An 81-year old passenger on a flight from Melbourne to Mildura says he contracted food poisioning on the flight from a bad chicken wrap. The food poisoning caused him to go to the hospital, where he underwent kidney surgery. I’m not a doctor, so I have no idea if those things are related. In any case, he’s suing.

This only goes to show, as Leslie Nielsen said in airplane, you should have the lasagna:

Rumack: What was it we had for dinner tonight?
Elaine Dickinson: Well, we had a choice of steak or fish.
Rumack: Yes, yes, I remember, I had lasagna.
