THOMASTON, Ga. - An Upson County couple is suing a grocery store chain in federal court, claiming that the husband found a used tampon in his bowl of cereal.

According to the complaint, Thomas and Lynn Roddenberry say they bought a box of Chocolate Chip Crunch cereal from the Save-A-Lot store in Thomaston in October 2008. A day after buying the cereal, Thomas Roddenberry says he discovered the tampon in his bowl after taking a bite of the cereal.

The man says he spit out the cereal, immediately became nauseated and went to an emergency room.

The suit was filed on Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Macon. A spokesman for Save-A-Lot declined to comment on the case on Friday, citing pending litigation.

If there was any way to prove

If there was any way to prove that this... object... wasn't intentionally placed in the cereal by the man, his wife, or a co-conspirator, this would have been settled by now. This is absolutely disgusting, and I can't believe the AC printed this trash. This is the kind of garbage that belongs in supermarket tabloids.

Why is he suing the store?

Why is he suing the store? Why not the maker of the cereal. Unless the box was opened when he bought it(and if it were, why did he buy it), the store has no control over this.

I hope he turned that thing in so it could be tested and have DNA extracted from it. Having it checked for DNA could possibly solve this case.

This sounds like a frivolous

This sounds like a frivolous lawsuit to me. After this long how will he prove anything. He and the attorney that filed this lawsuit must be financially desperate. Sounds like this one will be headed for the outfield.

He thought the string was to floss with after he ate.

How do you not notice

How do you not notice something like that in your food and why wait two years to file suit. The economy is bad but this is a bit much.

Could this be another "Mouse Soup Extortion Plot" attempted at the Newport News, VA Cracker Barrel a few years ago? Oh, this was a bogus attempt btw.

So let's try to imagine how

So let's try to imagine how things "might" have gone after the breakfast surprise...

A frosted flake calls up the police station and says "Sgt Quisp? I'm branned-off. Someone is playing trix on me!"

Cop: "Just wheaties a sec while I run some chex on the cereal number from the boxtop"

Flake: "I suppose you think I'm some kinda froot loop"

Cop: "Not TOTALly, but you might need to get either a lawyer or a Life"

Flake phones lawyer who says "wow you and your miss Muffets might be my Lucky Charms if only we can Post-date this claim. I'll get back to you Alpha-bit, just as soon as I finish watching this epis-oat of Star Trek"

(cue theme music) ... "to bowl-dly go, where no man has gone before...."
