Auburn resident Willie Blanchette alleges he badly hurt his teeth when he bit down on a large bone contained in his chicken pot pie ordered from the restaurant chain’s store in Scarborough in 2015.

The Sun-Journal reports that Blanchette is seeking damages plus attorney fees for “great pain and suffering and mental anguish requiring medical treatment.”
