A pedicure cost a man his big toe


From the MSN news article:

Several beauty salons in Indiana have been fined and placed on probation over the alleged use of razor devices and scalpels to remove calluses from customers’ feet.

Kenneth Jackey developed an infection in his right foot that resulted in the amputation of his right big toe after receiving a pedicure at a salon in Anderson, Ind., according to the state board of cosmetology.

On March 30, 2015, Jackey received a pedicure at Nail Art in Anderson.

After his feet were soaked in warm water, Nail Art’s Khanh Bui used what Jackey described as a scalpel to cut away heavily callused skin on his right foot, which he compared to “peeling a potato or an apple.”

Indiana law prohibits salons from using razor devices to shave, reduce or remove calluses because they can cause bleeding, potential infections and remove healthy skin as well as dead skin.

In a separate incident, Bruce Walters, a customer of the T-Nails salon in Muncie, Ind., developed an infection that nearly cost him his life and his leg, a lawsuit alleges.
