Small Business Sues Suppliers to Recover $1.7 Million in Damages for Defective Lids
Posted on Jan 14, 2009
Yesterday, it was reported that Missouri-based SensoryEffects Flavor Company, an ice cream flavor company, brought a commercial lawsuit against two of its suppliers, because the lids that those companies provided were allegedly defective, and led to the contamination of SensoryEffect's products. According to the complaint, SensoryEffects has incurred significant costs and liabilities as a direct result of the defective lids, including replacement cost of the products and the storage costs of its inventory.
Some of the causes of action, or legal theories, upon which SensoryEffects seeks to recover in this commercial litigation include breach of implied warranty (which is a form of breach of contract), because Sensory claims that the lids weren't fit for their ordinary and foreseeable use.
