TRENTON, N.J. (October 4, 2015) — One of New Jersey’s top pork roll makers is being sued by the wife of an employee who she says was fired for passing too much gas in the office.

The Home News Tribune reports that Louann Clem’s husband Rich Clem suffered serious consequences from gastric bypass surgery. Those included extreme gas and uncontrollable diarrhea.

The lawsuit alleges that Case Pork Roll Co. President Thomas Dolan complained about the side effects, and he allegedly began harassing Rich and Louann, who worked alongside her husband, when the odor of Rich’s flatulence overpowered the aroma of their company’s meat product.

Louann’s federal lawsuit claims that Dolan told Rich to work from home because he made the office smell.
