Man Who Hasn’t Stop Farting Since Eating Ham Roll In 2017 Sues Stall Who Sold It To Him For £200,000

He’s been hit by stomach cramps, fever, vomiting, and diarrhea.

46-Year-Old Tyrone Prades has sued Frankfurt Christmas Market Ltd. over a food infection caused by Salmonella that has seen him suffer for over five years. Prades of Chippenham, Wilts has stomach complications that have him farting after purchasing a ham roll when he visited the Birmingham Christmas market with his wife and kids.

Now, Prades [pictured with his wife] has sued the stall for £200,000, claiming he had been plagued with various symptoms and discomfort.

He complained of fever, vomiting, stomach cramps, and diarrhea from the ham roll he ate in December 2017. His lawyers informed the court Prades had been bedridden for about five weeks and added it had cost him his reputation for embarrassing moments at public places and gatherings. 

The flatulence in his alimentary canal also caused Prades Sleepless nights because of the intense pain he experienced.

Robert Parkin, one of the lawyers standing in for Prades, told the court that, months after the subsiding of the illness, he still experienced weird stomach noises in his GI (gastrointestinal) system. “The claimant continues to suffer from excessive flatulence, which causes him a great deal of embarrassment. The symptoms are, primarily, fatigue and altered bowel function associated with ‘churning’ within his abdomen and flatulence.”

“The claimant’s stomach continues to make frequent churning noises to the extent his sleep can become disrupted.” Mr. Robert narrated to the high court.

“The extent of the symptoms has been life-changing,” the prosecuting lawyer also insisted.  Other customers who visited the stall reportedly fell ill as well, but it wasn’t verified that what Prades and the others suffered from was caused by Salmonella. More so, the allegation claiming the flooring company boss had been infected with Salmonella seemed debatable, as no trace of Salmonella was found amid an investigation.

Philip Davy, the lawyer representing the Frankfurt Christmas Market Ltd, told the high court the council environmental health officers only found a trace of e-coli on a knife, but no Salmonella was seen.

Davy further pointed out that the allegation claiming Prades was suffering from Salmonella must be verified because he didn’t mention that he was suffering from the e-coli infection (the only bacteria seen on the knife). So far, the market has been closed and sanitized after the investigation by Public Health England, and the market’s operator has denied the allegations laid by Prades. However, the case will continue as a trial.
