Woman claims sundae tainted with blood

Sunday, January 22, 2006

GEORGETOWN, Del. -- Sundae, bloody sundae.

A McDonald's restaurant was sued this week by a woman who says her 12-year-old son ate a sundae mixed with human blood.

The franchise insists the fluid was strawberry syrup.

Carmen Jara bought the sundae on Dec. 30, 2004, and after her son said he tasted blood in the dessert, she talked to the manager at the restaurant. He confirmed it wasn't one of their normal toppings, according to the lawsuit.

Michael Meoli, owner of the McDonald's franchise, said the claims are unfounded, and that the manager didn't know what he was talking about.
