SYDNEY (AFP) - An Australian woman is suing a deli after drinking bottled water that allegedly contained semen, lawyers said on Friday, with claims that DNA showed it matched the owner of the business.

Alicia Cooper has filed a writ of summons in the District Court of Western Australia against the owner, who no longer runs the business, according to media reports that were confirmed by Slater and Gordon, the legal firm representing Cooper.

Among its accusations the writ states the owner knowingly placed the sperm in the bottled water and allowed its sale.
