MIAMI — A man has filed suit against a cruise line after he allegedly ate chocolate mousse containing shards of glass.
Timothy Witwer filed a complaint Sept. 30 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Celebrity Cruises Inc,. alleging that the cruise ship company failed to properly inspect the food it serves to its passengers, including the plaintiff.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 7, 2015, he suffered damages from being served food containing shards of glass.
