From the Dennis Kucinich lawsuit 

Perhaps you've seen that Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, met his match in the House three years ago, and it had nothing to do with redistricting. He is suing vendors in the House cafeteria for negligence and breach of implied warranty because he got an unpitted olive in his sandwich wrap, which apparently caused him an injury. Here is the relevant part of the lawsuit:

On or about April 17, 2008, plaintiff Dennis Kucinich purchased a sandwich wrap prepared by agents and/or employees of Restaurant Associates, Inc., ,and/or Compass Group USA, Inc. and containing olives supplied by defendants Performance Group, Inc. and/or Foodbuy, LLC.

Said sandwich wrap was unwholesome and unfit for human consumption, in that it was represented to contain pitted olives, yet unknown to plaintiff contained an unpitted olive or olives which plaintiff did not reasonably expect to be present in the food prepared for him, and could not visually detect prior to consumption.

As a result of consuming said unfit and unwholesome food, plaintiff sustained serious and permanent dental and oral injuries requiring multiple surgical and dental procedures, and has sustained other damages as well, including siginificant pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment.
