    I think we should require a warning label on children "Warning - may choke on food" and leave my hot dogs alone!

    I cannot speak for other Americans, but now that my naivete has been shattered, and I now know I have been deprived of Kinder eggs all this time it may take me a bit to assimilate to this.

    I will never be able to put the pieces of the illusion that now lies shattered at my feet back together again. Hopefully I can find the strength to carry on boldly into this newly tarnished reality.

    Thanks for ruining it for me.. I am sure it is for the best that this illusion is now dispelled though.

    We have very one-sided food laws.

    On the one hand we cant have chocolate eggs with toys in them, yet on the other we can have TONS of HFC in everything we eat (Yes I know HFC isnt bad in and of itself, however it permeates our entire food system and is difficult to exclude from a diet).

    I'm sorry for this lady's terrible loss, but all these safety rules are getting to be absurd. One kid dies of a freak accident and everyone else has to put up with some stupid new law. The politicians who write them can then claim that they are protecting the public safety and care about kids. The public gets saddled with new restrictions and a new federal oversight agency is created, along with more redtape to make life more irritating for the citizens.

    i'm sorry, as a mom, one of the foods you don't give to toddlers is a hot dog, period. MOST of us know this. did the woman never read a book?

    While this is absurd, I can't fathom losing one of my kids. I tend to give a pass on these things for a grieving parent. Don't know how I'd go on.

    That one pisses my wife off to no end. She grew up in Germany, and misses those.

    As for the OP, hey lady, guess what, life sux. I'm sorry beyond speech that her 4 year old died like this, a parents worst nightmare, but this is 100% a mother in denial, and a obviously a ****faced lawyer with $$ in his eyes. Think about it, a "good" lawyer, a teary-eyed mother with a huge heart wrneching story... a jury filled with women....

    And a hot dog manufactrer, knowingly SELLING LETHAL PRODUCTS WITH NO WARNING!!!

    Someone needs to buy this lady soem flowers, then slap the ever living **** out of her.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I doubt this lawsuit is going to go anywhere. Hot dogs have been sold like this for what, a century? The hot dog company will probably pay this gal off to go away.

    I don't think there's any winners in this one other than the attorneys.

    I've abotu ZERO faith in the US Legal system.
