Shi'Terra Sharp filed the lawsuit in Orange County on Thursday regarding the issue that happened in January 2020. Sharp said she bought chicken nuggets from the location at 13143 Cortez Boulevard in Brooksville and ate them at home. 

As she was eating the chicken nuggets, she said the meat was "black" in color, according to the lawsuit.
