We're approaching the food and drink section in my Products Liability class, so this Long Island Press story is a handy resource on various related incidents and lawsuits, including this one:
A few glasses of milk did a body bad after a man in Washington State reported that they gave him a stroke. Norman Mayo, 61, filed a lawsuit against Safeway supermarkets and the Dairy Farmers of Washington in 1997 because the milk Mayo claimed he was addicted to didn't have any warning label indicating that it would clog his arteries. Unfortunately for Mayo, a federal judge ended up throwing out his lawsuit. On a completely unrelated and untrue side note, Harold Milk claims he got a stroke after consuming a few jars of mayo.
