EDWARDSVILLE — A woman is suing the Edwardsville Arby's restaurant, alleging she suffered from food poisoning from her meal.
Elizabeth Schubel filed a complaint on June 8 in the Madison County Circuit Court against United States Beef Corporation, doing business as Arby's Restaurant, alleging the defendant failed to use reasonable care and caution in the preparation of its food.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 25, 2016, she was an invitee in the defendant's restaurant, located at 1800 Troy Road in Edwardsville, when she claims she ingested food containing campylobacter bacteria that rendered it unreasonably defective, unsafe and toxic.
As a result, Schubel claims she suffered injuries that caused her to incur medical, doctor and hospital bills.
The plaintiff alleges Arby's failed to properly prepare food for consumption by the general public.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in a sum in excess of $50,000, plus costs of suit and any other further relief the court deems proper.
She is represented by Allan L. Napp of Schrempf, Kelly and Napp LTD in Alton.
