Cleveland Pastor files suit against Steak 'n Shake
By WRCB Staff
CLEVELAND, BRADLEY COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -- A Cleveland pastor and his wife are suing Steak 'n Shake and the employee who gave their son hot sauce.
Tim and Mary Katherine Gann claim their son suffered a severe reaction last year.
They say the server asked their son if he wanted hot sauce in his chili.
The Gann's suit claims it was Blair's Mega Death Hot Sauce, which is 500-times hotter than a jalapeno.
The sauce is not served at Steak 'n Shake, and the Gann's essentially claim it was a prank by the server.
The Gann's claim negligence, and say Steak 'n Shake is vicariously responsible for the server's actions.
They're seeking $60,000 in damages.
