    There's a tampon in my cereal

    An Upson County man and his wife have filed a federal suit against a grocery store chain and cereal manufacturer, contending that the man found a used tampon in a bowl of cereal.

    In the complaint, Thomas and Lynn Roddenberry said they bought a box of Chocolate Chip Crunch cereal from the Save-A-Lot store at 1021 N. U.S. 19 in Thomaston on Oct. 23, 2008.

    The following day, Thomas Roddenberry opened the cereal box and poured cereal and milk into a bowl. After taking a bite, Roddenberry said he discovered the tampon in his bowl, according to the suit, filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Macon.

    Roddenberry said he spit out the milk and cereal and became nauseated almost immediately. He went to an emergency room for treatment, according to the complaint.

    The seal for the cereal box and the plastic bag containing the cereal showed no signs of having been broken by anyone previously.

    I wonder if someone was trying to increase the iron content of their breakfast cereal?
    Time to run a DNA test on the tampon.

    Is there proof the tampon originated from the cereal box?

  • Sometimes I just wonder how that kind of stuff ends up in that kind of places...

    I'd like to know what sort of person goes to hospital because they feel sick from something like that.

    Is there proof that the tampon was present, even? :P

    Also: "Roddenberry sustained physical injuries 'from the adulterated food' as well as emotional worry, according to the lawsuit" << Sustained physical injuries? Like... other than feeling nauseous? Did the used tampon then proceed to assault him? xD

    A Last.fm classic.

  • There was a girl in my year who claimed to have found a finger in her cereal. Apparently she was going to get £2500 from the company, cause off the distress.

    It turned out she was talking shite. (Although she never admitted to lying).

    2.5k for a finger would seem incredibly low

  • It might have been £25000, one of the other, it was while ago. Still she was talking shite.
