Woman Wants $25000 For 'Starburst Injury'
BOSTON -- A Michigan woman is claiming that a sweet snack turned into her worst nightmare, and now she's suing a well-known candy company.
Victoria McArthur said she misaligned her jaw while eating Starburst candies. She said a piece of the candy caused her top and bottom teeth to stick together, resulting in a condition called "temporal mandibular joint dysfunction."
McArthur is seeking $25,000 from the Mars Corp. to pay for her rehabilitation, plus compensation for her pain and suffering. There has been no comment from the company on the lawsuit.
