KFC Must Pay $8.3m To Poisoned Girl In Australia

Fast-food giant KFC has been ordered to pay $8.3m (£5.1m) to the family of an Australian girl left severely brain damaged after being poisoned by a chicken meal.

Monika Samaan fell ill with salmonella poisoning after eating a "Twister" wrap at a KFC restaurant near Sydney in 2005.

The poisoning left her wheelchair-bound and unable to speak.

KFC said it was "deeply disappointed" by the decision and would appeal.

A judge of the Supreme Court of the state of New South Wales awarded the A$8m damages after ruling last week that KFC had breached its duty of care to the girl.

The family's lawyer, George Vlahakis, said they were relieved by the decision.

"Monika's severe brain damage and severe disability has already exhausted the very limited resources of the family," he said.

"Monika is now a big girl and they are finding it increasingly difficult to lift her and to look after her basic needs as well as look after Monika's younger siblings.

"The compensation ordered is very much needed. KFC have to date been determined that Monika does not receive a cent."

KFC, which is owned by Yum! Brands, expressed surprise at the judge's ruling, insisting the evidence did not show it caused Monika's disability. It has indicated it will appeal.

"We feel deeply for Monika and the Samaan family. However, we also have a responsibility to defend KFC's reputation as a provider of safe, high-quality food," a company manager said.

The court was told that Monika was in a coma for six months after she, her parents and brother fell ill with vomiting and diarrhoea after sharing the wrap, the AAP news agency reports. The other family members all recovered.

The family's lawyer told the court that at busy times, the restaurant would reuse chicken that had been dropped on the floor.

Three of them sharing one wrap sounds fishy to me they are tiny, I reckon the other two made up symptoms to make there claim stronger but hey I am cynical.

Sounds like a crock to me, too! I would have expected more people with symptoms.

Re: KFC Must Pay $8.3m To Poisoned Girl In Australia

I hope this forces KFC to clean up its act, they seem to employ only the most retarded or lazy kids available. You know a place is bad when their own staff refuses to eat what they make and sell. Most of the wings they sell still have feathers on them and some of the ribs still have bits of guts in them. Then you might find that the pieces are not cooked properly, or are so oily that they make you sick. I used to only eat the boneless strips but even they are now pretty bad, i haven't had KFC yor a while now because of this. They should change their name to Kentucky Fried CRAP!!

what is money to you if you cant enjoy it? people like you are delusional. its pretty much like you'd cut your dick off to get with the sexiest bitch on earth. no fuckin point getting braindead and poisoned just to win millions of dollars you wont be able to enjoy. unless you also love being taken care of like a baby 24/7. im sure the money you love can take care of that.
