Jeffrey Piccolo has filed a lawsuit against Walt Disney Parks & Resorts and Raglan Road after his wife Kanokporn Tangsua suddenly died from anaphylaxis due to “elevated levels of dairy and nut in her system,” the lawsuit alleges. Kanokporn Tangsua was a doctor at NYU Langone in New York visiting Disney on vacation.

From the Actual Lawsuit:

KANOKPORN TANGSUAN and and JEFFREY PICCOLO chose to eat at RAGLAN ROAD in DISNEY SPRINGS because believed in protecting patrons such as KANOKPORN TANGSUAN from allergens. This belief was based upon representations made by DISNEY and RAGLAN ROAD.

KANOKPORN TANGSUAN was a medical doctor at NYU Langone in New York and knew she had a severe allergy to dairy and nuts. On October 5, 2023, KANOKPORN TANGSUAN and her family were seated at RAGLAN ROAD restaurant in DISNEY SPRINGS. When the waiter came to the table, KANOKPORNTANGSUAN and her husband, JEFFREY PICCOLO, advised the waiter that she had severe food allergies and required allergen-free food.

KANOKPORN TANGSUAN and JEFFREY PICCOLO questioned the waiter about various items on the menu to confirm whether they had allergies to them or not.

Summary of the lawsuit:

After Questioning the waitstaff, the waitstaff double-checked with the cooks whether certain menu items had or had not have nuts or dairy. The couple, Jeffrey Piccolo and Kanokporn Tangsua were assured that her food would be served without those ingredients.

Food orders were onion Rings, a Vegan Shepherd’s Pie, Scallops, and Fritters. Kanokporn Tangsua again checked with the staff, making doubly sure her allergy would be addressed. She was assured again.

45 minutes after the meal, while strolling and shopping at Disney Springs, Kanokporn Tangsua felt ill. She suffered from shortness of breath and collapsed. Kanokporn Tangsua was administered an Epi-Pen and an ambulance was called.

She was transported to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead. The medical examiner’s investigation determined that KANOKPORN TANGSUAN’s cause of death was as a result of anaphylaxis due to elevated levels of dairy and nuts in her system.

The Lawsuit maintains: that RAGLAN ROAD failed to educate, train, and/or instruct its employees, waiters, waitresses, chefs, managers, workers, and/or cast members to make sure food, indicated allergen-free and/or requested to be made allergen-free, was in fact free of allergens. Employees, waiters, waitresses, chefs, managers, workers, and/or cast members failed to prepare KANOKPORN TANGSUAN’s food free of allergens as they said they would, even after asking about it multiple times.

As a direct and proximate result of the negligence of Defendant, DISNEY, and Raglan Road, KANOKPORN TANGSUAN died. is how the lawsuit ends. Jeffrey is speaking about $50,000 plus in according to Florida Wrongful Death Act, §768.21, Florida Statutes.
