Family sues maker of Veggie Booty – Voorheesville parent just wanted apology after children got sick

They said Veggie Booty sickened their children and left a bad taste in their mouths.  Now, the Scheels family of Voorheesville is suing the maker of Veggie Booty, a puffed-rice-and-corn snack that caused salmonella poisoning in two of their children and 58 [61] other people, mostly toddlers, across the nation.  The lawsuit was filed Tuesday with state Supreme Court in Albany County. It is the second suit triggered by the salmonella outbreak.
