HOUSTON – A Harris County man has pursued legal action against an Asian restaurant in Houston after he allegedly came down with food poisoning.
In his lawsuit filed against Mai’s Restaurant on May 5 in the Harris County 164th District Court, David O’Toole says he dined at the eatery on Mar. 5, 2016. He reportedly ordered and consumed pork rolls and combination fried rice which inflicted him with e-coli and shigella.
Court papers accuse Mai’s of failing to check the temperature of the food to make sure tainted food products were not served to patrons, as well as failing to implement proper sanitation practices.
O’Toole insists that he did not contribute in any way to his ordeal.
He consequently seeks unspecified monetary damages.
Attorney Mark B. Levin of the Stern Law Group in Bellaire is representing the plaintiff.
