PORTLAND, Ore. A man who says he broke two teeth when he bit into some mashed potatoes is suing at Outback Steakhouse restaurant in Portland, Ore.
Roger Branstetter says there were bits of broken porcelain in the food in February 2012 when he cracked two molars, and he says a manager admitted that bits of a broken plate had fallen into the potatoes.
Branstetter is suing the restaurant for $48,000 in Multnomah County Circuit Court.
A managing partner of the Evergreen Restaurant Group that owns the franchise, Jason Bender, told The Oregonian (http://is.gd/xnMhLP ) he couldn't speak in detail about the case, but hadn't heard of any other customers with a similar complaint. He says safety is very important to the restaurant.
