Personally, this hit a sore spot for me, because I love chicken! However, Kentucky Fried Chicken has been ordered to pay $8.3 million to an Australian girl who suffered severe brain damage and was paralysed after eating a Twister wrap.
Monika Samaan was seven when she suffered salmonella encephalopathy — a brain injury linked to food poisoning that also left her with a blood infection and septic shock — in October 2005.
Other family memebers also got sick and claimed Samaan’s injuries, which include severe cognitive, motor and speech impairment and spastic quadriplegia, were caused by a chicken Twister wrap from a Sydney KFC outlet.
The New South Wales Supreme Court ruled in the family’s favour a week ago and on Friday ordered KFC to pay the girl $8 million in damages plus legal costs.
