Liability roundup


  • Re: chips bags. One reason chips bags are filled tightly with air is to protect the chips from being crushed. This is never mentioned. An accurate statement of the amount of chips is given by the weight, printed on the package. Likewise, vitamins and similar are often put in a bottle and then a box which makes them appear larger, and they have been sued, but this package is so you will notice it on the shelf. The number of pills is printed on the box.

    • One small minor point:

      Potato chip bags are not filled with air, but nitrogen. The nitrogen helps prevent spoilage.

      (Shredded cheese, pre-packaged salads, etc are the same way.)
