Michigan Woman Claims Starburst Candies Are Dangerously Chewy in Lawsuit

Starburst Fruit Chews are exactly as their name would indicate: chewy. But one Michigan woman says the candies are so chewy, they should come with a warning label.

Victoria McArthur, of Romero, Mich., is suing Starbursts' parent company, Mars Inc., for more than $25,000 for "permanent personal injuries" she claims she sustained after biting into one of their yellow candy in 2005.

"I don't know, maybe about 3 chews and it literally locked my jaw … and it just literally pulled my jaw out of joint," she told MyFoxDetroit.com.


McArthur's lawyer, Brian Muawad, says the candies caused her to develop a condition known as temporal mandibular joint dysfunction. McArthur says she has had trouble chewing, talking and sleeping since the incident.

Muawad says McArthur offered to negotiate a settlement with Starburst's insurer to pay for her rehabilitation, but the company said no way. A spokesman for Mars refused to comment.

McArthur says she just wants to make sure nobody else meets the same end she did when she decided to indulge her sweetooth.

"I don't want to see anybody else have to go through what I have gone through from eating a piece of candy that was supposed to be soft chew," she said.

    Just feed her some Milk Duds.

    It'll probably break her fucking jaw so she can't eat and will starve to death.

    Man.

    I dunno about anyone else, but I always stick the pack of starbursts in my back pocket for a little before I eat them so they become nice and soft.

    I do this with Laffy Taffy as well. And Now & Laters.

    When I saw the title I thought it would be about how some housewife got grossed out by the taste and, like, dropped a cake or something and wanted 2 million dollars in damages

    But this is funnier because she chewed so hard she fucked herself up

    Hopefully they will force the judge (the judge who had filed the claim, not the judge who ruled in the cleaners' favor (YES THE DOUCHEBAG WHO SUED WAS A JUDGE)) to pay all of the dry cleaners' legal fees.

    Oh, the best part of that story?

    THEY DIDN'T LOSE THE PANTS. They gave them to him and he still sued.
