AUBURN — Willie A. Blanchette of Auburn filed a lawsuit Wednesday complaining he found a bone in his chicken pot pie at Kentucky Fried Chicken in Scarborough.

Blanchette sued the American restaurant chain’s store in Scarborough where, he claimed in his complaint, he had bought a chicken pot pie on Oct. 28, 2015.

While eating the pie, he “sustained significant damage to several teeth when hit down on a large piece of bone that was contained” in the pie, according to a complaint filed in Androscoggin County Superior Court.

Blanchette experienced “great pain and suffering and mental anguish requiring medical treatment” for which the restaurant is liable, the complaint said. Those “permanent” damages have caused Blanchette “loss of enjoyment of life.”

He is seeking damages plus attorney’s fees and costs.

Serena Wheeler, a manager at the Scarborough store, said she hadn’t learned about the complaint and directed inquiries to corporate headquarters.

A telephone voice message left at the restaurant’s corporate headquarters’ media line was not returned by Wednesday evening.
