This Popular Burger Chain Is Being Sued For a Recent Norovirus Outbreak

A franchisee of the popular regional fast-food chain Habit Burger is being sued by a customer who claims he experienced norovirus-like symptoms and was hospitalized after eating at a Shoreline, Wash. location. The food poisoning incident is one of nearly two dozen similar cases that have recently been linked to this particular restaurant, prompting an investigation into a potential norovirus outbreak. Ed Yusen has filed a lawsuit against Seattle Char, the operator of the Shoreline fast-food location where he and a dining companion allegedly contracted the virus. Yusen claims he suffered abdominal pains and vomiting after eating lunch there, with symptoms getting progressively worse to the point where he lost consciousness and hit his head on a bathroom counter, according to Fast Casual . After awaking with a head injury, Yusen sought medical help and was hospitalized for several hours, the suit says. RELATED: Workers Reveal the Reasons Behind Rampant Food Safety Issues at This Chai
