The Case of the Thirsty Mollusk

I learned recently of the BBC radio series, The Cases That Changed Our World. The latest episode is "The legal case of the snail found in the ginger beer ," Donoghue v Stevenson (1932).

In the early days of my law practice handling personal injury cases, I received a call from a client who was lunching at a restaurant around the corner and informed me there was a large piece of a wooden match in the food she had ordered and wanted to know what to do. I asked her if she suffered injuries in her mouth. She responded, "Oh, no, I haven't started to eat the meal." I told her to tell the waiter to take it back and order something else.
