Man Can Sue Over Raisins

PROVIDENCE, R.I. A man who insists he was made sick by a box of raisins donated to a food program by Rhode Island’s prison system can continue with a lawsuit against the agency. Adams alleged that he suffered nausea, vomiting and diarrhea after eating a box of raisins in October 2004. He says he found an insect larva and insect poop near the bottom of the box. The raisins were stored at the Rhode Island Department of Corrections food distribution center. They were then handed out as part of a federal food program for the needy. Adams got the raisins in a food giveaway by a Providence church.
