Poor Mrs. Donoghue

This is incredible, one of the most famous legal cases impinging on our everyday life is all about a snail. In Donoghue v Stevenson [1932] AC 562 we learn that we have a duty to take care not to harm our ‘neighbours’. It all came about because Mrs. Donoghue felt ill with a 'dicky' tummy after she found a snail in her ginger beer bottle. I was reading just a few days ago regarding someone finding a dead frog in a packet of Aldi salad. I wonder if they are aware of Mrs. Donoghue?
