    Disney Nacho Cheese Lawsuit: Family of 4-Year-Old Sues Over Burns from Meal at Magic Kingdom - Crimesider - CBS News


    A family is suing Walt Disney Parks and Resorts after they say their 4-year-old son was badly burned by dangerously hot nacho cheese that spilled on him at the Magic Kingdom.
    I don't know, on one hand I feel bad for the boy, accidents happen and it sucks this happened to him.

    On the other hand, accidents happen, it sucks it happened to him but most intelligent people know that nacho cheese is hot.

    I really don't think they deserve to sue for that, its common sense, like understanding that coffee is hot.

      Ugh. Is parenting really that much harder than filing a lawsuit?

        Cahill also said the nachos did not come with any warning of their temperature.
        Oh, please. How about if you can't check your very young child's food for him before he eats, you should have your children taken away from you.

        Sound ridiculous? So is the lawsuit. Bad things happen. It's a shame it happened to that little boy. Placing blame doesn't do anything except pass the guilt from the parents to someone else.

        Those parents should be adults and deal with their bad situation, not try to point the finger anywhere away from themselves. Way to teach your kid that it's never your fault if there's someone that can be sued.

        Sorry, I just think too many people sue nowadays. My family has had many excuses to sue various places over the years, but we never have. I can understand wanting Disney to pay the cost of the medical bills, I guess, but at the end of the day, you should really watch your kid.

        I wasn't allowed to use a steak knife on my own til I was like 7. It drove me crazy and you could say it was overprotective of my mom, but I never got burnt by hot nacho cheese, either, so she did something right.

          I'm hoping that nacho cheese can only be served cold. That's the only way to get people up in arms about rediculous lawsuits.

              If the kid spilled the nacho cheese on himself. Disney is automatically not involved. It's his fault own fault. I think they are just looking for a reason to sue Disney and make some money, those burns will heal in a week.

              If I am not sueing a certain brownie company for putting a rusty staple in my brownie causing me to stay in the hospital for 4 days (which was misdiagnosed by the doctor btw, that could have killed me). Then they should have no right sueing for this accident.

                next - we will have viscosity laws for cheese.. cheese must only be the consistency of water so if it spills, it does not stick to you.

                    Hahaha, I actually was gonna say something about that but I decided not to, in light of all the other mean things I said.

                    But yeah. Especially for a 4 year old! I don't think I even had nachos til I was much older. It's kind of a messy food, and definitely not the kind of healthy thing a kid that young should be eating.

                      Disney is very much operating the way it should. Hot foods have to be kept hot (specifically, over 140 degrees F), or else bacteria form that can sicken or kill humans.

                      The usual acceptable range is 140-160 degrees. If the nacho cheese were served up boiling (212 degrees), that might be a problem, but I am betting they can't even get the cheese that hot in the storage/serving receptacle.

                            As a mother of a 4 year old, he would never be eating nacho cheese for dinner. He has never had nacho cheese.
                            Was he drinking it? What the hell was he doing with all that nacho cheese that it burnt his lip like that? I am guessing he put it on his hot dog, fries or nuggets or something. But so much that it would have burnt his lip like that. I honestly never experienced it being that hot

                            BUT, why did mom and dad check the temp of the food? I feel bad for the little boy, his lip looks awful, but seriously, the parents neglected their role in being parents.

                              From what I have read, he slipped on the chair, and grabbed for something to stabilize his fall, catching the nacho cheese.

                              If the nacho cheese wasn't hot, who would want to eat the large nachos/cheese landmass that would have formed/solidified in its place?

                                They did not state that in the article, but I looked up other articles which say this, so at least that answers my 1 question

                                But, I have had the nachos cheese from Cosmic Rays (as I am sure a few others here have) , its not that hot. Its warm and melted, but not scolding. Or at least never in my experience has it been hot enough to cause burns like that. And I have had it when they just brought it out. The boys lip looks really bad.

                                  What I can't get, is how nacho cheese can give someone third degree burns. I don't think this is something worth suing for, but if their food can give people third degree burns, they really need to start letting their food cool before handing it over to customers.

                                    My guess is it's about 'sticking' to you. Something that isn't that hot - but persistant can cause pretty serious burns because its left there to keep working at it.

                                    Something that comes off very quickly is less likely to burn you as bad for the same heat.

                                    But in this same thread of how many stupid labels do we really need...

                                    In my cheese and crackers package today (you know.. those little cheese + cracker packs you ate as a kid).. they have the plastic piece to spread the cheese right? Well on the cover of the package they now have to say 'CHOKING WARNING: Do not put red stick in mouth. Dispose of stick after eating'

                                    Before too long we'll have to put labels on trees 'CHOKING WARNING: Do not put acorn in mouth... unless you are a squirrel'

                                      Re: Disney Nacho Cheese Lawsuit: Family of 4yr old Sues Over Burns

                                      I was reading the comments on that page when I came across this:

                                      I have taken my 4 year old to eat at Cosmic Ray's many times. Disney does not serve the cheese to the kids. It is on the condiment bar in a metal dispenser with the words CAUTION HOT CHEESE written on it. The parents had to get the cheese for their son. They didn't realize how hot it was when they dispensed it in the paper cups. It cools off pretty fast by the time you walk to your table.
                                      Is this true? I never got the nacho cheese at Cosmic Ray's so I wouldn't know. But if it is true then Disney is completely innocent and it's the parent's fault.

                                      Hmmm, parents not reading things to protect their kids? Where have I heard this before? *Looks at avatar*

                                        I definitely think the burns wouldn't have been as bad if it wasn't nacho cheese, which sticks to you. I've never had any burns that were bad enough to be visible, but I have on occasion had hot food of that kind of consistency get on my hand or something, and it's worse because of the consistency. It sticks to you like glue and even using a napkin it doesn't all come off immediately.

                                        I'm definitely the queen of "it must have been their fault or it wouldn't have happened to them," which is a major flaw of mine. But seriously, it had to be their fault or it wouldn't have happened to them. Just kidding.

                                        I think it was a combination of bad luck, bad decisions and not watching young kids closely enough. Things we can learn from this:

                                        - Watch your 4 year old very, very closely.
                                        - Don't let your 4 year old eat nachos for dinner.
                                        - If you must feed him nachos (parenting fail!), help him out, man. Those things are messy.
                                        - WATCH YOUR DANG KID.

                                        Seriously. I mean, it doesn't make it that much better to me if the kid fell out of his chair and grabbed for the nachos. You know how kids fall out of their chairs? It's not by sitting in them properly with their butt in the seat. It's by being hyper and standing on the chair and fidgeting a lot. I've seen kids fall and hurt themselves countless times, and every single time, the parent/guardian was doing something else when it happened.

                                        I'm not saying all accidents can be avoided, but kids are still kids. They don't have the experience to know not to do something unless you tell them, and they don't have the motor skills to avoid accidents the way we do.

                                        Short version: Always watch your kids, especially around hot food, and don't let them monkey around where they can get hurt.
