    AN unborn baby suffered food poisoning after his mother ate a chicken roll on a Virgin flight, court documents allege.
    Renee Cherry has launched legal action in the Supreme Court on behalf of her son Zayd Fokeera, now aged almost two, seeking compensation from Virgin Australia.
    According to a statement of claim filed in the Supreme Court on Friday, a pregnant Ms Cherry flew from Townsville to Brisbane, then from Brisbane to Melbourne, on May 23, 2009.
    During the flight, it is claimed, Ms Cherry bought a chicken roll from flight attendants, and she suffered listeria poisoning as a result.
    "The roll was tainted and not fit for human consumption, as it contained listeria bacteria," according to the statement of claim.
