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!’”

27 year old Anton Yelchin, who played Chekov in the new Star Trek film was killed at his home on Sunday. His death was caused by his Jeep Grand Cherokee, which rolled backwards and pinned him between the car and the gate to his home. Our thoughts are with his loved ones and fans.
After investigating the star’s death, it was found that the vehicle was left in neutral rather than park. Jeep Grand Cherokees were recalled across the United States in April due to an issue with the gear shift that causes drivers to believe their car is in park, though it is not. The design flaw has caused hundreds of reported accidents and injuries across the country.
When purchasing a vehicle, buyers expect their new car to be safe. Unfortunately, vehicle recalls occur with astonishing frequency and are extremely dangerous.
The New York Times recently spent some time looking over the recently released Takata emails regarding the defective airbags which have caused eight deaths in America and been the cause of a massive auto recall across the country. In these emails, one airbag engineer for Takata, Bob Schubert, wrote that he had been “repeatedly exposed to the Japanese practice of altering data presented to the customer,” and noted that this type of behavior was “the way we do business in Japan.”
Schubert’s memo was one of the many documents released in relation to a personal injury lawsuit against Takata that suggests the company has an issue with systemic manipulation. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has fined Takata for not cooperating in its investigation of the automotive company’s defective airbag inflaters, which, according to the Times, was a response to the company manipulating data.
