What the f? Living is dangerous! I am so tired of these lawsuit happy POS! At the age of 74 do you really think she had a quality living? Probably no, the lady is probably happy she got to punch the time clock early instead of rotting away in a nursing home.

Better hope I'm not on that jury. You'll go home with empty pockets. I really seriously doubt that they put salmonella in their peanut butter on purpose

typical knee-jerk reaction. wonder if the lawyer contacted the family or the family contacted the lawyer.

she was already in a nursing home, dying of cancer, and when you have cancer, not too easy to fight off colds, an infection, pneumonia, etc., might not have been the peanut butter's fault.

The ambulance chasers are out.

What do you expect to get in damages in the lawsuit? You must have damages?
Are you dependent on her for income? Did she have an expectation of leaving you her income?

I am one you don't want on that jury too!!

This will drive the company out of business, and drive the cost of food up.

Such is the cost of selfishness.

Peanuts are very prone to mold. This King Nut sounds like the typical cheapo, off-brand that nursing homes would buy in bulk. If they can save a penny, they will. I've been associated with how nursing homes and I know how tightfisted they can be.

Add this to the other horror stories we have about nursing homes, and it is high time that the whole nursing home industry needs to be examined.

I suggest surprise, unscheduled inspections. That will keep these outfits scared enough to keep a better operation.

Why are you all upset that this family is suing the manufacturer of a negligent product. It is perfectly within their rights and they failed to produce a safe product.

What, we should let them get away with it and continue to poison people?

Your posts are either jokes or more likely indicative of the kind of lowlife dummies that nursing homes hire to "take care" of people.

In which case, people like you are the nut cases.

I think it is very sad that families have to pass the blame on to others when they are grieving their loved ones. We are going to be going through pretty rough times with the economy the way it is and putting others out of a job due to greed or being angry is sad. Now they should be focusing on what times they had and the memories of their mother. But in our world today people like to pass the buck to who ever is able to pay it forward.

I am very offended by your comment. You better pray that you have alot of money when you are old, so you won't have to go in a nursing home. The majority of people that work in nursing homes are awesome individuals. Who do a job that most of us prefer didn't exist. The reality of getting old and having someone take care of us is a thought most of us push in the back of our minds until we are old and need the help.
