Court orders Kellogg to pay $10K to man who broke a tooth while eating cereal

A small claims court has ordered the makers of Kellogg's cereals to pay a Montreal man $10,000 after he broke a tooth while eating one of the company's cereals.

The mishap happened on March 15, 2015, while Jean Dufresne was eating a bowl of Kashi GoLean Crunch. He told the court he bit down on an especially hard piece of cereal.

The hearing heard from an expert suggesting the cereal in question contains nuts and caramelized sugar bits which are tough to bite into.

Dufresne told the hearing that the mishap left him unable to chew properly for months, during which time he underwent three separate medical procedures.

Kashi GoLean Crunch is actually made by Kerry, Inc., but distributed by Kellogg's.
