Maesel Dorn, a local woman in Portland, Oregon, got an unpleasant surprise when she noticed a foreign object in her roasted red pepper tomato soup that she purchased from Pacific Foods of Oregon, LLC. The night after the 72 year-old woman had her initial cup of soup, she experienced violent illness and mild hallucinations. It was not until several days later that she noticed a strange object, described as “mouse intestine-like”, in the box holding the soup. After several phone calls, Pacific Foods came to pick the object up for testing, but apparently the testing never took place. Dorn is now seeking $400,000 in injury damages from Pacific Foods for alleged negligence. Portland attorney Michael Fuller is representing Dorn.
