New York resident Cailey Fiesel during the second week of November filed a lawsuit against Spanish clothing and accessories retailer Zara, claiming that a dead rodent was sewn into the dress that she bought from the store.
According to Fiesel’s lawsuit, Fiesel bought a $40 scoop neck dress from the Zara store in Greenwich in Fairfield County, Connecticut when she found that the dress was filled with a rat’s remains.
New York-based Apparel Production Inc. factory owner Teddy Sadaka, who owns the manufacturing outlet in the United States that distributes the Zara brand, clothes designed by German fashion designer Karl Otto Lagerfeld and Marc Jacobs, told the New York Post that the rat must have been the work of a disgruntled worker, noting, “I’m thinking it had to be done intentionally. It looks like a prank from a worker being paid a couple of cents and saying, ‘Take that, America!’”
