NEW YORK, Aug. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based personal injury law firm, Munawar & Andrews-Santillo, has commenced a lawsuit on behalf of New York City resident, David Matt, who went into anaphylactic shock after consuming a sandwich at the well-known restaurant chain, Pret a Manger.
According to Mr. Matt, who is severely allergic to sesame, he was assured that the sandwich was safe for him to eat prior to ordering it. Unfortunately for Mr. Matt, the sandwich did, in fact, contain sesame and he suffered serious pain, injury, and hospitalization as a result.
"First, we would like to commend Mr. Matt for deciding to take a stand and insist that companies be held responsible when they breach the public trust and serve dangerous food products without providing any warning," said Ashley Andres-Santillo, Partner at Munawar & Andrews-Santillo LLP. "Thankfully Mr. Matt survived going into shock, but we need to make sure not only that he is compensated, but also that steps are taken to avoid episodes like this from happening again."
"There is simply no excuse for serving unsafe, inadequately labeled food products and then misrepresenting their ingredients to customers – companies that adopt such practices must be stopped. It is our sincere hope that Mr. Matt receives the justice he deserves and that this case ultimately serves as a reminder to other businesses that there are consequences for cutting corners with the public's health and safety."
