Waiter, There's A 9-Foot Tapeworm In My Salmon/Digestive Tract!

A Chicago man is suing Shaw’s Crab House after passing a 9-foot tapeworm he contends came from consuming undercooked fish. Anthony Franz claims he became violently ill after eating the salmon salad at Shaw’s, and is suing the restaurant and its parent company, Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises, for $100,000.

A representative of Lettuce Entertain You denies Franz’s allegations, but documents filed with Franz’s lawsuit indicate that a pathologist found that the tapeworm could have only come from undercooked fish.
