Georgia couple files lawsuit over cereal find

A Georgia couple has filed a federal lawsuit claiming a used tampon was found in a box of cereal, the Macon Telegraph reported.

Thomas and Lynn Roddenberry claim they bought a box of Chocolate Chip Crunch cereal from a Save-A-Lot store in Thomaston on Oct. 23, 2008, the newspaper reported. The next day, Thomas Roddenberry opened the box and poured cereal and milk into a bowl, according to the lawsuit.

He discovered the tampon in his bowl after taking a bite and sought treatment at a hospital emergency room after feeling ill, according to the suit, filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Macon.
