A woman had to have her jaw reset after dislocating it while eating a triple-decker burger.

Nicola Peate, from Ormskirk, Lancashire, injured herself while eating at Liverpool’s Almost Famous restaurant on Aug. 8.

Peate, 25, who has a syndrome which makes her joints unstable, was treated at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital the next day. She said she would be “more conscious of the size of food in future.”

Emergency department clinical director Kathryn Clark said dislocations such as Peate’s were “rare.” “I hope that in future, she takes more care when eating over-sized burgers,” she said. She added that “if food is too large, we would recommend cutting it into more manageable chunks.”
