Play places aren’t nearly as safe as they used to be.
A parent who took her two young children to a Chicago-area McDonald’s is suing the fast food restaurant because she claims one of her children found a used condom in the play area and then ate it.
Anishi Spencer and her two sons, three-year-old Jonathan and two-year-old Jacquel, were eating in the restaurant’s playground area when they allegedly found the condom. Some time later, the lawsuit says the two-year-old coughed up a piece of the condom. Both children had to receive medical attention.
The lawsuit accuses McDonald’s of failing to properly keep hazardous material from areas open to children (which, should there be used condoms in parts of McDonald’s not open to children?) as well as failing to use survellence or inspection to detect “deviant activities,” or boning, at its restaurants. Spencer is seeking at least $50,000 in damages, for negligence and to cover the children’s medical expenses.
And to think, all this comes to light the same day McDonald’s announced its “Egg White Delight,” an egg yolk free version of the Egg McMuffin. Coincidence? I think not.
