Parents say their daughter had serious allergic reaction
By STAFF REPORTER
The parents of a Salina girl are suing the corporate owner of the Great American Cookie Co. store in Central Mall, claiming their daughter suffered a severe allergic reaction three years ago to a peanut butter cookie purchased from the store.
The lawsuit brought by Jon Gwin, the father of 12-year-old Sierra Gwin, is seeking a sum in excess of $75,000 and a civil penalty not exceeding $10,000. The suit was filed by the GwinsÂ’ attorney, Julie McKenna, of the McKenna Law Office, 114 S. Seventh, in late November.
The suit alleges that on Nov. 27, 2002, that Sierra, then 9, was with her mother and her siblings at the mall and her mother bought several cookies. Sierra started eating her cookie on the drive home and became ill, suffering severe stomach cramps and difficulty breathing. She received medical treatment at the emergency room of Salina Regional Health Center.

Judge approves $1,700 settlement
By DAVID CLOUSTON
The corporate owners of the Great American Cookie Co. store in Salina's Central Mall have agreed to pay $1,700 to settle a lawsuit involving a Salina girl who had an allergic reaction to a peanut butter cookie.
A Saline County district judge approved the settlement agreement last week concerning Sierra Gwin. The suit alleged that on Nov. 27, 2002, Sierra, then 9, suffered severe stomach cramps and breathing difficulties on the drive home from the mall after she ate a cookie from the store. She was treated in the emergency room at Salina Regional Health Center.
I also found this but it appears to be a different lawsuit they were involved in.
