Danny Howard filed the lawsuit earlier this month, alleging that she suffered severe burns and even stopped breathing in August 2017 when the hot mushrooms she ordered lodged in her throat, the Star-Telegram reported.

Howard contends the wait staff did not warn her how hot the mushrooms were.

She said she was forced to call 911 while on her way to see a doctor over the throat burns and was eventually admitted to Parkland Hospital’s Burn Unit.

She is seeking $200,000 to $1 million in damages, the newspaper reported.
