Alleging foreign matter in her meal made her ill, Beaumont resident Lillie Thomas has filed suit against R.E.E. Inc., doing business as McDonald's.

The suit was filed Dec. 8 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on Dec. 15, 2009, Thomas went to the McDonald's on Phelan Boulevard in Beaumont for breakfast.

"Part of her meal incorporated eggs," the suit states. "Due to the negligent preparation of the meal by defendant, some foreign matter was in the meal, which plaintiff aspirated. As a result, plaintiff suffered injuries that required medical attention."

The suit does not speculate on what the foreign matter might be.

The suit does, however, allege the defendant negligently represented its food as safe.

The plaintiff is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.

Beaumont attorney Ryan Scott represents her.

Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. B191-447
