PORT ANGELES: Local couple sues Sara Lee Corp.

PORT ANGELES — A local couple is suing Sara Lee Corp. after allegedly finding glass in a hot dog produced by the company.

Betty and Andy Michaelis filed the lawsuit this week in Clallam County Superior Court.

The Maryland company manufactures Ball Park brand hot dogs, according to the lawsuit.

The plaintiffs allege they bit into glass, or a similar substance, when they ate two hot dogs in July 1999.

They claim Sara Lee was negligent in manufacturing the food. According to the lawsuit, the package was intact when purchased, and the Michaelises did not tamper with it.

The couple is seeking compensation for medical and emotional expenses, as well as monetary damages.

Sara Lee has a duty to safely manufacture its products, the lawsuit claims.

Company officials could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
