UPDATE: Man Wins $7M In Lawsuit Over ‘Popcorn Lung’
DENVER (CBS4)– A Centennial man has won a $7 million verdict in the so-called “microwave popcorn lung” case.
59-year-old Wayne Watson had sued the manufacturer Gilster-Mary Lee, also Kroger and Dillon Foods.
He had purchased the popcorn at King Soopers.
Watson’s attorneys claimed there should have been a warning on the label. But lawyers for the supermarket chain responded saying they “might have well have warned that there are aliens popping out of the bags because there’s just as much support for that.”
