NJ woman sues Dunkin' Donuts over burns from a hot cider spill

BELLEVILLE - A New Jersey woman has filed a lawsuit against a Belleville Dunkin' Donuts over severe burns she claims to have suffered after the lid on her hot apple cider became dislodged and the contents spilled on her lap, a New Jersey Law Journal report said.

Jennifer Fragoso filed the suit in Superior Court in Essex County. It claims the cider was heated "beyond industry standards to the point where patrons could not safely consume it because it was not reasonably fit, suitable or safe for its intended purpose." 

The report says the 24-year-old alleges she suffered second and third-degree burns as a result of the incident. She reportedly spent several months in treatment at The Burn Center at St. Barnabas in Livingston, but is left with scarring and may require future surgery.
