At a fastfood place I worked at last year, some woman came in raising seven kinds of Cain because we had some peanut product somewhere, somehow, that came into contact with her peanut allergic child.
I called the district manager, and he said “Well, we have a sign posted, and we can’t be held responsible because she chose not to read it.”
OK. I’m not making a judgement about the ethics, but I am curious of what kind of legal protection that a 4 inch by 4 inch warning concerning peanut oil, or whatever, has. The sign was on the door that the drive thru traffic sort of limited the pedestrian traffic.
So, what sort of legal rulings are in effect for a situation with a very small, and out of the way, though not totally inaccessible, warning?
