The lawsuit alleges negligence in the handling of her dietary restrictions, leading to a fatal incident.

According to reporting by WESH 2 News, Dr. Tangsuan, who had severe allergies to nuts and dairy, visited Raglan Road on October 5, 2023, where she and her husband informed their waiter of her allergies. The lawsuit claims that the waiter, after consulting with the chef, assured them that the food could be prepared allergen-free.

The family ordered four menu items, some of which were missing the allergen-free flags when they were served. The waiter reportedly reassured them that the food was safe to eat despite the missing flags. After the meal, Dr. Tangsuan went shopping with her mother-in-law, during which she began to experience severe breathing difficulties, requiring her to self-administered an Epi-Pen.

Dr. Tangsuan was taken to a nearby hospital by emergency medical services (EMS), where she sadly passed away. The medical examiner determined that her cause of death was anaphylaxis caused by high levels of dairy and nuts in her system.
