Former Soldier Bites Into Needle Burger King Hawaii

Former Soldier Bites Into Needle Burger King Hawaii, A FORMER soldier’s lawsuit alleging he bit into needles in a Burger King sandwich purchased at Hawaii’s Schofield Barracks is headed to trial in August after a settlement couldn’t be reached.
Clark Bartholomew and his family sued in federal court in Honolulu after he said he was injured in 2010 on the sprawling central Oahu base. The former Army sergeant’s lawsuit says one needle pierced his tongue when he bit into his Triple Stacker sandwich, and another was lodged in his small intestine, requiring hospitalisation.
The defendants include Miami-based Burger King Corp. and the U.S. Army and air force Exchange, which operates the franchise.
“We don’t feel there’s any merit in the claims,” Grant Kidani, a Honolulu attorney representing Burger King, said Monday, adding that the franchise is “totally operated by the government.”
A spokesman for the exchange referred questions to the assistant U.S. attorney handling the case, who didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
