EVESHAM, Pa., Oct. 28 (UPI) — A Pennsylvania police officer is suing a deli and the cook who admitted to putting body hair into his bagel sandwich.

Evesham Police Officer Jeremy Merck, 30, said in his lawsuit against Marlton deli Good Foods to Go the eatery was negligent for failing to keep its premises safe and for failing to properly examine the sandwich, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Thursday.

The suit alleges the eatery failed to properly hire, train and supervise its employees.

The suit names former Good Foods to Go employee Ryan Burke, who pleaded guilty last October to aggravated assault on an officer and retaliation for a past official action. He was sentenced to two years’ probation, fines and 15 days in jail.

The suit is seeking unspecified monetary damages.
