Couple Find Bloody Paper Towel In Frito-Lay Munchies Bag - Suing
<snip>

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 isnt 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.

He and Curran, a junior math major at Bridgewater State College, have been subjected to testing for HIV and hepatitis infection. The 2004 Rockland High graduates began dating three years ago while both worked in food services at South Shore Hospital.

Brooks Pharmacy in Rockland, where Curran and Currie claim they purchased the allegedly tainted bag of chips on June 21 before heading off to The Omen at the Showcase Cinemas in Randolph, is also a defendant.

Repeated calls to spokesmen at Brooks Rhode Island headquarters yesterday were not returned.

A spokeswoman for Frito-Lay in New York declined to comment.

2. Currie, who is pursuing a career as an electrician
Does he have an agent? Do you think he will get his "big break"????

3. They were eating Doritos and Cheetos and *NOW* they're worried about
their health all of the sudden? If they really cared about their health they wouldn't have bought the chips in the first place. ;)

4. Why would they sue
the place they bought them from? Like they had anything to do with the packaging of the product! :shrug:

Final disclaimer: :sarcasm:
