I actually spoke to "E Online" today regarding the recall of Hannah Montana granola bars. "E" wanted to know if someone could sue Miley Cyrus (aka Hannah Montana). As I said:
Do you live in China? That would help, says attorney Bill Marler, who represents victims in food-poisoning cases.
"China has recently passed a law saying someone who becomes sickened from a product can sue someone who puts their name on the product or is part of the campaign for the product," Marler tells me.
But in the U.S., Marler says, we have no such laws. "Your only recourse is against the people who made the granola bar," Marler says, "and the company in Georgia that produced the peanuts."
