Can I sue a burger restaurant for finding plastic in my burger? 2 Answers as of July 10, 2015

This happened May 23, 2015 at the McDonald’s on Mohawk St. Utica NY 13501. I ended up pulling the plastic out my throat. I went to my dr's and got tested for any illnesses you can get from saliva and I ended up with strep throat for two weeks.

Does the doctor say that it was in fact strep and that it was from the plastic? Any witnesses? Did you report this to the restaurant? I ask because there are unscrupulous people who would be willing to make such a claim falsely, and so franchises such as this are on the lookout. Unfortunately, that also means that some legitimate claims are denied.

You waited too long. Did you put them on notice immediately? Any witnesses? Do you have the plastic piece?
