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.

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.
TV's Vinnie: Trans fats = flavor. Anyone who still remembers KFC before they got rid of TF oils knows what I mean.
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.
I want your skull: Their pepperoni pizza has, and lists trans fat on the nutritional info.
WordyGrrl: Gyrfalcon: 99.998er: I am betting she is overweight, wears tank-tops & stretch pants, has overweight dirty kids, and has that, you know, that...that...smell to her. I know this type. I am always stuck behind them at the check out counter.This. There's no picture of her, which means she's hideously overweight, and I'll bet dollars to donuts she just now started reading labels because she's on a "diet" and suddenly cares about whether there are "trans fats" in her food. And if you asked her, she couldn't tell you what a "trans fat" was except it's bad and could kill you or something.Trans fat is...is... it's a TOXIN! And, um, everybody knows what toxins are. It's all over the internet!/But she's totally okay with each serving having 34% of the RDA for sodium.
Okoboji: So let's take a look at the 2 basic flaws in this bink's case:The lawsuit says the frozen pizzas in question shouldn't contain a toxic food additive banned all over the world, said Greg Weston, an attorney for the plaintiff.Really? Is it? Truly? Hmmmm, somehow I kinda doubt that (and I'm too lazy to research it).
pir8p3t3: The research has been out for years, and legislation banning it outright has even passed in some areas.

litespeed74: Hey Mom, how about making dinner for your kids? Or at least picking up some easy make at home meals.
tbhouston: wait...frozen food isn't natrual and healthy???? dude, woah
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.
Dog Welder: This just in: packaged frozen foods are not healthy for you.If you want "healthy" pizza, make it from scratch. It's really not difficult to make a decent pizza dough. It might take a little more time, but it's worth it.
hillbillypharmacist: As long as it was disclosed on the nutritional info, I don't really see how they have a case.
CheekyMonkey: 99.998er: I am betting she is overweight, wears tank-tops & stretch pants, has overweight dirty kids, and has that, you know, that...that...smell to her. I know this type. I am always stuck behind them at the check out counter.I'll take that bet. People who look like your description don't give a shiat about trans fat - it's 40% of their diet.
I want your skull: hillbillypharmacist: Shostie: Does the list of ingredients include the phrase "partially hydrogenated?"INGREDIENTS: ENRICHED WHEAT FLOUR (WHEAT FLOUR, MALTED BARLEY FLOUR, NIACIN, REDUCED IRON, THIAMINE MONONITRATE, RIBOFLAVIN, FOLIC ACID, ASCORBIC ACID), BARBECUE SAUCE (WATER, TOMATO PASTE, BROWN SUGAR, VINEGAR, MOLASSES, SUGAR, SALT, APPLE CIDER VINEGAR, CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF MODIFIED FOOD STARCH, MUSTARD BRAN, DRIED GARLIC, NATURAL HICKORY SMOKE FLAVOR, CARAMEL COLOR, SPICE, NATURAL FLAVOR), LOW-MOISTURE PART- SKIM MOZZARELLA CHEESE (PART-SKIM MILK, CHEESE CULTURE, SALT, ENZYMES), WATER, GRILLED SEASONED WHITE MEAT CHICKEN (WHITE MEAT CHICKEN, WATER, MODIFIED FOOD STARCH, SALT, DEXTRIN, SODIUM PHOSPHATES, FLAVORING, YEAST EXTRACT, FRUCTOSE, CARRAGEENAN, CHICKEN FAT, COOKED CHICKEN), SOYBEAN OIL, SMOKED GOUDA CHEESE (PASTEURIZED PART-SKIM MILK, CHEESE CULTURE, SALT, ENZYMES, ANNATTO [COLOR]), SUGAR, RED ONIONS, CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF YEAST, SALT, WHEAT GLUTEN, CILANTRO.
