(Newser) – A lawsuit claims a suburban Philadelphia woman got an extra topping on her Chick-fil-A sandwich: a dead rodent. The AP reports Ellen Manfalouti sued in Bucks County Court over the tiny rodent she claims was baked into the bottom bun of her chicken sandwich. A co-worker picked up the sandwich for her at a Langhorne restaurant in November, and the two started to eat in a conference room at the insurance agency where they work. "I felt something funny on the bottom of the bun," Manfalouti told the Philadelphia Inquirer on Monday. "I turned it over. I said to (my co-worker), 'They burned my roll really bad.'" Her co-worker, Cara Phelan, said that as soon as Manfalouti threw the sandwich on the table, "I realized it was a small rodent of some sort. I could see the whiskers and the tail."

Manfalouti's lawyer Bill Davis told the newspaper that he filed the lawsuit last week against Chick-fil-A franchise owner Dave Heffernan and the store after they weren't responsive to complaints. Heffernan and the Atlanta-based fast-food chain said they can't comment on litigation. Manfalouti is seeking more than $50,000 for physical and psychological damages. She told the Inquirer she was treated at a hospital for nausea, had to see a therapist for anxiety, and could hardly eat for weeks. (Read more Chick-Fil-A stories.)
