A San Antonio woman is now preparing to sue Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen after she’d allegedly became infected with a flesh-eating New World screwworm from the restaurants famous rice and beans.

As Courthouse News reported, the suit was filed just last Tuesday by Karen Goode, who’d accused the eatery of knowingly selling her the tainted food that left her ill. Goode found herself being hospitalized as she was allegedly eaten alive “from the inside out” by maggots typically linked with livestock and other warm-blooded animals.

The complaint says that “the flesh eating screwworms entered Plaintiff’s digestive track [sic], laid eggs which embedded in the interior lining of Plaintiff’s small intestine, and when hatched, infested Plaintiff’s body and began to eat Plaintiff alive from the inside-out.”

Goode filed her suit against the Georgia-based Popeyes, as well as it’s fanchisee Z&H Foods in Bexar County Court, attempting to press charges with claims that the restaurant had failed to train staff in the proper procedure of avoiding screwworms.

She is now requesting $1 million-plus for damages of negligence, medical expenses, physical disfigurement, pain and suffering, as well as loss of bodily functions and enjoyment of life.

A Popeyes spokeswoman told Courthouse News that the company does not wish to comment on pending litigation.

So, what are your thoughts on this crazy news? Think she deserves that much money? Should the employees have been trained to avoid such situations?
