Israeli Company Sued After Glass Is Found in Softdrink Bottle

Israeli business paper The Marker reports that a court has fined the drink manufacturer Tempo 13,000 ($3,500) shekels after a woman found glass in a bottle of Jump soft drink. The woman who found the glass gets 3,000 shekels ($850) in compensation.

Aside from the soft penalty, the strange part of the story is that according to the report the company must sign a 20,000 shekels ($5,500) guaranty that it will “not commit similar offences in the next two years.” Now call me a stickler for consumer rights, but I would want quite an assurance that I can have soft drinks without worrying about shards of glass on an ongoing basis. Instead, it seems we’re assured glass-free drinking until March 17 2013. Make a note of the date.
