Customer Sues Hardee's

Posted September 15, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— A Rockingham County man is suing the company that operates Hardee's restaurants.

Ralph Lindsey Jr claims the Hardee's Skat-thru in Reidsville served him a cup of ice water with cleaning solution.

After drinking from the cup, Lindsey was hospitalized with an inflamed esophagus. Now doctors say Lindsey has lost his sense of taste.

The suit was filed last month against Boddie-Noell Enterprises Incorporated.

Boddie-Noell has less than two months to respond to Lindsey's allegations.
