Chuck Norris filed a $10 million lawsuit involving a medical device procedure, claiming his wife was poisoned by a chemical used in MRI imaging scans.

The action star announced the $10 lawsuit on Thursday, saying the compensation he was seeking would cover the medical costs he and his wife, Gena Norris, are now facing, Newsweek reported.

The suit was filed Wednesday in San Francisco Superior Court, Newsday reported.

Newsweek said the suit targets McKesson Corp., the diagnostics and imaging unit of Italian health care company Bracco S.p.A., and ACIST Medical Systems Inc.

Fox News reported the lawsuit focuses on the use of the metal element gadolinium, which was injected in Gena Norris to improve the clarity of her MRIs and caused her to experience debilitating pain and left her exhausted.

Earlier this year, the Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee of the European Medicines Agency recommended that the use of linear gadolinium-based contrast agents be suspended due to the risk of gadolinium accumulation within patients.

However, the American College of Radiology slammed the suggestion, claiming that “there is indisputable evidence that the amount of gadolinium deposited in tissues after a single GBCA dose is incredibly small and is detectable using only the most sensitive of medical and scientific instrumentation.”

San Francisco Business Times reported that the Norrises' attorneys at Cutter Law P.C. of Oakland insisted that gadolinium poisoned patients and made them sick by settling into their tissue, bone and organs.

The attorneys further claimed that targeted parties were fully aware of the dangers and failed to provide sufficient warnings.

"One of the problems is this is a very misdiagnosed and underdiagnosed condition," said Todd Walburg, an attorney for the Norris',” per Fox News.
