A Restaurant Served a Steak Contaminated with Human Urine-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
This alleges that a woman got sick after eating at a restaurant in and later tests on the steak revealed it was contaminated with human urine. The writer of the email says that there is a lawsuit as well as DNA testing to find out whose urine it was.
This is a hoax, and one that has caused near devastation for more than one restaurant about which it has been spread.
The eRumor has been circulated about Outback restaurants in Champaign, Illinois and Charleston, South Carolina as well as other restaurants in other parts of the country, both local and chain restaurants. In 2007 this rumor started circulating about the Texas Roadhouse restaurant in Cheyenne, Wyoming and was debunked by reporters from the Wyoming Tribune-Eagle newspaper. That one claimed that the steak was contaminated with urine, feces, and meth. The incident never happened.
There is no evidence from the restaurants, hospitals, county health departments, any published reports, or any other first-hand sources that this has ever happened.
Oh girl do I have a story for you……..make sure you tell everyone…………..I want this place to go out of business……….
Okay, a guy here at work went out to eat to an eating establishment with a few friends and their wives.
One of the wives ordered a steak well done.
To make a long story short she ended up having to send the steak back 4 times because each time it came back bloody. By the time she had to send it back all those times she was not really hungry, ate a few bites and asked for a doggy bag to take the rest home.
Well, she got sick that night. So sick her husband took her to the Emergency Room at Carle.
There she had to have her stomach pumped. The doctors asked her where she had eaten, what she had eaten. After telling the doctor, the doctor asked if by chance they brought some home. The husband said yes and went home to get it so they could take tests on it in their lab.
After taking the steak to the lab………….it came back positive with human urine on it!
The lady has to have tests every 3-6 months now for disease for the next 6 years! The husband said he would own the restaurant or will put them out of business. They have a big lawsuit going I guess. They are doing DNA on the steak to find out who urinated on it.
Oh……..the restaurant was The Outback in CHAMPAIGN! Isn’t that just GROSS! I would be so mad and a lawsuit would not be my stopping point either! Makes you stop and think next time before sending your food back to the kitchen!
