Dallas Cowboys Coach 's Wife Finds RAT in McDonalds Salad in Southlake, TX

DALLAS -- Dallas Cowboys assistant coach Todd Haley is suing a suburban McDonald's, claiming his wife and the family's live-in baby sitter found a dead rat in a salad they took home and began to eat...The lawsuit filed Thursday in state district court seeks $1.7 million in damages, The Dallas Morning News reported on its Web site.

According to the lawsuit, Christine Haley and Kelley had eaten part of the salad purchased June 5 at a McDonald's in Southlake before the rat was discovered. The women became violently ill and endured long-lasting physical injuries, the lawsuit said.

Believed to be a juvenile roof rat, the rodent was about 6 inches long and was found on its back with its mouth opened, Scott Casterline, a spokesman for the family, told The Associated Press.

He said the women didn't find it until taking the salad home to eat, and that a manager from the McDonald's "didn't offer any comfort" after driving to their house to investigate. The suit was filed after the restaurant didn't follow through on promises "to make things right," he said.

2. Does McD's charge extra for meat in a salad?
Most places do.

3. Maybe she should learn to cook. Who buys McDonalds salads
to eat at home when they can afford a live-in sitter?

Then again, $1.7 million could buy a lot of real food.

8. Actually you're absolutely wrong
$1.7 million with today's adjusted inflation and current market values could only purchase 3 loaves of Food City brand white bread....but thats before interest.

Don't bother with the cost of butter...if you have to ask you can't afford it.

4. She just now noticed that Mickey D's meat is made from rat parts?
This is exactly why 90% of our meals are home cooked w/ ingredients hand picked-I trust restaurants about as much as I trust the government.

Fast Food restaurants I wouldn't trust a cup of coffee from.

5. Be fair now - it's not their fault that coffee beans and rat poop look
exactly alike. Anyway, once they've boiled it for an hour or so before serving, you can be sure it's sterile! :)

6. why did they feel the need to describe its physical position?
"...was found on its back with its mouth opened..." i guess that is better than it being found curled up like it was sleeping?! i don't know what that has to do with anything.
