and that should scare anybody who eats at any kind of restaurant."

What do they mean by that?
I understand where they are coming from and coming from a former employee or Taco Bell (not this one) they get there meat in a bag already made they just heat it up so the makes me wonder either this just happened to go to this store and Taco Bell (the main warehouse) isn't doing things correctly or someone from THIS taco bell is doing to the meat.

I would expect Taco bell to sue to the fullest the law would allow if this man is fake but i would hesitate to think that this man would say the hospital saw things if you didn't find it in his doctors report. Good luck to whom ever is the one in the right.

How in the world do people prove these cases? Did the person retain the urine tainted food to show court and did the man keep the bones he pulled from his throat so Taco Bell could see if they were from an animal used in the meat on pizza? I just wonder!

Did he not chew his food before he swallowed it? I won't dismiss the claim that there was something in his food. But, to take a bite, chew and then swallow only to find bones stuck in his throat seems far-fetched. If you can shew something and not feel it, then it probably isn't big enough to do any damage. The fact that he is not sueing for more, to me, is indicative that he would rather settle quickly for less than to take the chance of being found a fraud. This is assuming that Taco Bell would just settle this one quickly to avoid bad publicity. Taco Bell should investigate this guy much more closely.
