As we all know, the Aldi lawsuit was a huge story that made national news. A man from Minnesota was severely injured after eating a cake that contained artificial sweeteners and other artificial ingredients. The man’s family sued Aldi for negligence, claiming that the company knew that their cakes had dangerous ingredients on them yet sold them to millions of people every day. Well, it looks as if the jury has found in the plaintiff’s favor, and they have awarded him a pretty large settlement.
What was interesting about this particular case is that the Aldi lawsuit is not just one case but rather it is part of a larger class of lawsuits that were filed against the giant bread manufacturer for selling a product that was dangerous to consumers. Basically, what happened is that this man was playing on a very popular internet joke and ate a cake that had something similar to the real thing.
When he later told his family about the accident, they noticed that there were several things that were wrong with the story that he told them. This was when they learned that the man had been injured due to eating a cake that contained artificial sweeteners and other dangerous ingredients.
So, how can a person be so careless about a slice of cake? Is it because they are lazy?
Apparently not, as this particular man actually thought that his harmless and wonderful piece of cake was so great that he would watch the entire six part Netflix documentary series about it. However, as he was eating the food, he suddenly felt dizzy, suffered from a heart attack, and even died of a heart attack. Can you see how irresponsible of this individual was?
Well, this may seem like an isolated incident to some people, but what happens when this type of thing happens repeatedly?
It is bound to impact many people, especially if they have children. Some companies may consider this a frivolous lawsuit, but these lawsuits have been happening for decades. Sometimes, companies will do everything that they can to avoid paying these lawsuits, but if you’re the person that lost your job because of this man, you deserve to be compensated.
How can companies get away with something like this?
Well, sometimes they might have only one employee who is responsible for seeing the property, or they may be using computers that have been infected with malicious programs. If you have never heard of the National Product Safety Commission before, then you definitely need to take a look at it. This is a government entity that will help you fight against any kind of dangerous product that may be distributed in the United States.
Before signing any type of agreement with a certain company, you should always thoroughly research it.
The worst thing that you can do is sign anything without knowing exactly what it is. You need to make sure that it is going to be beneficial to you. When you sign a contract, you should be completely aware of the limitations that the company has. It’s your right as a consumer, and an employee, to know what you’re getting into.
