2/4/11 – I have a tendency to deride my wife when she checks the liquid level of every bottle on the shelf when shopping at the supermarket, but maybe she has a point!


Five northern California counties brought suit against Clorox Company alleging that the company was filling its bottles to only 80% of capacity.  The action was successful when Clorox agreed to settle for $200,000.


So here is fair warning to all: you may be getting cheated on the quantity of stuff you buy in the store, so it is probably worth checking before buying.
