Customer Says Outback Steakhouse Mashed Potatoes Cracked His Teeth

Posted By on Wed, Feb 19, 2014 at 9:27 AM

An Oregon man says it was more than his potatoes that were mashed at an Outback Steakhouse. That's why he's suing the chain for $48,000, claiming that he cracked his teeth when he bit into his mashed potatoes, which allegedly included some bits of broken porcelain.

This morning's Oregonian reports that Roger Branstetter claims he was dining at a Portland Outback Steakhouse when he cracked two molars. He said even the restaurant manager "admitted that a plate had been broken in the kitchen and that pieces had fallen into the mashed potatoes."

The Outback is owned by the Evergreen Restaurant Group, which operates Outback Steakhouse locations in Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Montana and Alaska.

Branstetter said, during an emergency trip to the dentist, he had his molars pulled and replaced with dental implants. His suit states that the Evergreen Group was negligent in not telling its customers that a dish had been broken and food might have contained "sharp, hard, dangerous and potentially deadly pieces of a broken plate."
