Cracker Barrel to Pay Over $9M for Serving Cleaning Liquid Instead of Water


“Cracker Barrel is out over $9 million after a man was served cleaning liquid.

In 2014, the man was served a full glass of a cleaning chemical instead of a glass of water.

The man says that the one sip he took left permanent damage to his mouth and esophagus, which resulted in numerous medical bills.

“The jury returned a verdict for compensatory damages of $4.3 million in just 30 minutes — one of the fastest verdicts we have ever seen — and awarded punitive damages of $5 million after only 10 minutes of additional deliberation,” the man’s attorney told CNN.

Have you ever been served something completely different from what you ordered at a restaurant? How do you think this sort of thing could have happened?
