Celiac.com 09/05/2019 - A Virginia man is suing T.G.I. Fridays after suffering a life-threatening allergic reaction from a hamburger bun he thought was gluten-free. In May 2018, Randall Collier visited the T.G.I. Fridays in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, for dinner, and told the waitstaff several times he had a “life-threatening gluten allergy." Collier then ordered a gluten-free hamburger from the gluten-free menu, and when the hamburger was served, he inquired again about the bun being gluten-free, according to the suit. The waitstaff assured Collier that the bun was gluten-free, the suit states. After just a single bite of the bun, Collier “immediately went into anaphylactic shock, resulting in injuries, medical treatment and damages,” according to the lawsuit Collier filed in Horry County, SC, against T.G.I. Fridays and Atlantic Coast Dining, Inc. According to the suit, the restaurant's kitchen manager claims the waitstaff failed to request a gluten-free hamburger bun for Collier's order. The lawsuit accuses T.G.I. Fridays of negligence, creating a dangerous condition for Collier, and misrepresenting the food they served him. A statement by T.G.I. Fridays reads: “This is a franchise location and we cannot speak on their behalf.”
