Suit alleges child ate condom found at McDonald’s

CHICAGO — A lawsuit against McDonald’s alleges a child ate a used condom he found in the play area of one of the chain’s Chicago restaurants.

The mother alleges the 2-year-old coughed up a piece of the condom and that both children required medical treatment.

The suit accuses McDonald’s of failing to remove harmful debris from an area used by children.

McDonald’s said Thursday it was investigating and that ‘‘providing a safe, clean environment is a top priority.’’

The woman’s attorney, Jeffrey Deutschman, says he tried for months to reach a settlement but got no response.
