Prisoners Sue Over "Vile" Chicken Dinner

The Burlington Free Press reports on a trial to start this week in federal court in Vermont, brought by prisoners against ConAgra for an allegedly foul frozen chicken dinner.

[The plaintiff] Butts had started munching on a chicken breast when he noticed the meat contained an intact digestive tract, from esophagus to rectum, he wrote. The internal organs appeared to contain corn, grain and chicken feces, Butts wrote.

The case is brought pro se and will have a one-day trial tomorrow.

Thanks to Sam Charron for the pointer.
