  • I just found a bone in my mcchicken from mcdonalds.

    Sarah’s Answer

    Definitely consult with a personal injury attorney, but I believe your claim is barred by Mexicali Rose v. Superior Court (Clark) 1992 which states if the injury-producing substance is natural to the preparation of the food served, it can be said that it was reasonably expected by its very nature and the food cannot be determined to be unfit or defective. A plaintiff in such a case has no cause of action in strict liability or implied warranty. If, however, the presence of the natural substance is due to a restaurateur's failure to exercise due care in food preparation, the injured patron may sue under a negligence theory.
