Damn You, Frito Lay!

According to our very own Boston Herald:

Rockland sweethearts taking in a cheesy horror flick found something far harder to stomach when they pulled a blood-stained paper towel from a bag of chips they brought with them to munch on.

“They were completely grossed out, to use their terminology,� said Boston attorney Michael Bean, whose law firm is representing Lauren Curran and Peter Currie, both 20, in a federal product liability lawsuit against Frito-Lay.

“This isn’t a nut or a bolt,� Bean noted. “This is a foreign object that had blood on it and all the apprehensions that go with it.�The paper towel was allegedly folded into quarters among a Frito-Lay Munchies Cheese Fix mix of Doritos, Cheetos, Rold Gold and Sun Chips and was soaked through with what laboratories in Texas have determined was blood from a human male.

Currie, who is pursuing a career as an electrician, has been ruled out as the source, according to the civil action.

Make the bastards pay. There is no way this is some sort of hoax looking to make quick cash out of a corporation. There’s no way that this kid, after watching CSI a few too many times and realizing that he didn’t have enough cash to buy something he wanted, convinced a bleeding buddy to give him the paper towel he wiped his cut with. These kids are from Rockland. Nobody from Rockland would ever do anything underhanded. Sure, the bagging process for snacks at Frito Lay is probably completely self-contained, with no human hands touching the product from the time it is base ingredients to final packaging, but I have to side with the 20-year-olds. Make the bastards pay.
