Man claimed hamburger was contaminated with fecal matter

A man sued Fairlea, West Virginia Burger King, saying he had been given a contaminated Whopper.

I took a bite out of it. It tasted funny. I started to get sick, and I ran to the bathroom and threw up."
He returned, took the top off of his hamburger and
saw something brown mixed in with the fixings of the burger. It smelled real bad. It looked like something ... how can I phrase this? ... like you're going to use the bathroom.

Greenbrier County Health Department laboratory analyst Ron Ramirez who had been examined the Whopper testified the burger had a high fecal coliform content.

The jury, however, did not hold Burger King liable.
