Bite into a Starburst--And Sue!
This must be the week of crazy lawsuits--we now have a Michigan woman suing the makers of Starburst candy because--are you ready for this...
The candy is too chewy.
Apparently the gal bit into a lemon Starburst and after three chews, the candy stuck to her teeth and locked her jaw. She now suffers from Temporal Mandibular Joint Dysfunction. She declined any offers from the candy company to pay for her jaw rehabilitation.
As the company lawyer said, you think maybe one could get a clue from the packaging--it does say "Fruit Chews."
