serpent_sky: I know how she can avoid these "toxic" pizzas: read the ingredients before buying something and don't buy anything you find objectionable!
serpent_sky: I know how she can avoid these "toxic" pizzas: read the ingredients before buying something and don't buy anything you find objectionable! It's really that easy! It's not as if they were hiding the fact that trans fats were in the food. She should be thrown out of court immediately and forced to pay the legal fees for the companies for being simply that stupid.
hillbillypharmacist: Well, here is the nutritional info from the website for the BBQ Chicken pizza:[i291.photobucket.com image 757x151]It reports no trans fat. This may be the issue at hand.Of course, if it has 0.3gm of trans fat and the FDA allows it to be rounded down to zero, I still don't really think they have a case.

I want your skull: Their pepperoni pizza has, and lists trans fat on the nutritional info.
fruitloop: The most frequent of Ms. Simpson's purchases of Nestle Trans Fat Pizzas were at the TargetWell, there's your problem.
hillbillypharmacist: I want your skull: Their pepperoni pizza has, and lists trans fat on the nutritional info.It sure does. Which is kind of a blow to the plaintiff here, as I can't see how CPK can be liable for potential damages for a food product that is legal to sell and is explicit on the packaging.
I_Am_Weasel: fruitloop: The most frequent of Ms. Simpson's purchases of Nestle Trans Fat Pizzas were at the TargetWell, there's your problem.I'm not sure I'd buy a Nestle Trans Fat Pizza, you just don't know what is in it.Doesn't matter. She's from California. Liberal bastion, therefore she's not required to have any personal responsibility.
Jument: But when she learned they contained trans fat-an ingredient linked to heart disease, diabetes and cancer-she felt as if she were sold poison.Right or wrong, I just want to punch her in the face after reading this bit. It's a goddamn frozen pizza. It's unhealthy, trans fat or no, you stupid farking cow.
Dafodude: To be fair, subby, this is a class-action suit, so it's not like she's expecting to get 5 million to herself. And if this stupid-ass suit actually does win the lawyers will take half before the any other claimants get their check for five dollars and sixty-two cents.Anyway, this article makes it seem like a slam dunk at first saying PHVO is "banned worldwide". Poor choice of words considering that later in the article it specifically states that only a few jurisdictions in the U.S. have banned it, and only in restaurants. Even the complaint itself says "banned in many parts of the world." That does NOT mean "banned worldwide."Nestle is right to say that they're in compliance with regulations. I didn't feel like reading the entire 23 page complaint, but I'm guessing this case doesn't have much merit at all, and that it's just enough worth the risk for the lawyers to give it a shot. They could probably give less than two shiats about Katie Simpson and her Snowflakes, et al.
Egoy3k: What is up with the derp brigade lately, every thread it's always liberal this liberal that.
I_Am_Weasel: Oh. I almost forgot.Hooootttt Poccckkkeeetttt.
theorellior: I went to a CPK once, I didn't know WTF I was dealing with. All the pizzas seemed to involve mayonnaise or bacon or both. I had the distinct feeling I was in an Olive Garden but without soup and with the pasta flattened into squishy crusts. I couldn't figure out how, exactly, California was involved. It occurred to me that CPK was about as Left Coast as Boston Market is Beantown.
TV's Vinnie: Trans fats = flavor. Anyone who still remembers KFC before they got rid of TF oils knows what I mean.
