PRODUCTS LIABILITY a nebraska woman on June 6 won $300,000 in a strict products liability suit she filed against the Pillsbury Co., maker of Green Giant-brand french-cut green beans. The woman claimed that she had suffered a throat injury after eating a foreign object mixed in with the contents of a can of the beans. Alleging that the can must have contained a sharp stem or thorn, Susan Stickney, 50, also alleged that the resulting injury affected her vocal cords, and that she still has pain when swallowing. The defense maintained that Seneca Foods, not Pillsbury, manufactured the beans. The plaintiff countered that Pillsbury was the “apparent manufacturer.” Stickney v. The Pillsbury Co., No. 02-CV-03240 (D. Neb.). PLAINTIFF’S ATTORNEYS: Terrance O. Waite, Keith A. Harvat and Amy L. Patras, Waite, McWha & Harvat, North Platte, Neb. DEFENSE ATTORNEYS: Alexandra R. Tinkham and Jay L. Welch, Locher, Cellilli, Pavelka & Dostal, Omaha, Neb.
