On December 2, mom Karissa Riddle was running errands with her 6-month-old son, Clark, at a mall in Gastonia, North Carolina and stopped at Qdoba for food, she told The Huffington Post in an email. While mom was eating her dinner, baby Clarke was also hungry so she proceeded to breastfeed him. Riddle claims that a Qdoba employee then approached her table to make sure she was covered up.
According to the mom's account, the employee argued that Qdoba company policy allowed her to ask Riddle to cover up, and if she refused to cover, she would be asked to leave. The employee reportedly added that if Riddle then refused to leave, she would call the police.
