I swallowed a broken piece of a clear plastic fork. Being that the fork was clear. I could not see the broken piece in the bowl of spaghetti sauce. It caused a tear and hole in my esophagus. Which then caused severe sepsis. I spent 19 days in the hospital. Had 2 surgeries in 4 days that saved my... Read more »
It's difficult to say. I think it unlikely that the fact that the fork was translucent will support a viable cause of action.

He doesn’t sell through a trusted site because he said it takes a good portion from his sales and does it directly. He also informed me that he will take it down from... Read more »
