A pregnant California woman has filed a claim saying she found a bloody fingertip in a salad at an Applebee’s restaurant in Paso Robles.
Attorney Eric Traut of Santa Ana says the manager confirmed the fingertip belonged to a cook.
A letter from Applebee’s says the restaurant can’t force the cook to undergo health tests, but a spokesman says the cook has volunteered to undergo screening.
The claim is the precursor to a lawsuit. It seeks unspecified damages, medical expenses and lost income.
