Diner suffers allergic reaction from gumbo, sues restaurant for misrepresenting dish's contents

By John Suayan | Jan 17, 2019


HOUSTON – Claiming that a Pasadena restaurant lied to him about a certain food item, Harris County resident Tim Johnson has filed a lawsuit.

Johnson’s complaint, which was filed on Jan. 14 in the Harris County 190th District Court, accuses Louisiana Chicken and Seafood of misrepresenting the contents of its gumbo.

According to the plaintiff, he ordered the dish from the restaurant on May 2, 2018 with specific instructions not to include shrimp. The eatery purportedly assured him that the gumbo would not contain shrimp.

Johnson ate the gumbo and discovered it had shrimp, the suit says.

“A violent” allergic reaction prompted the complainant to seek emergency medical care, it adds.

Consequently, the plaintiff seeks unspecified monetary damages.

He is represented by the law firm Mestemaker & Straub in Houston.
