Officials in Fairfax County, Virginia, have sued Krispy Kreme doughnuts for clogging its sewer system. The lawsuit alleges that Krispy Kreme damaged its sewer system by dumping yeast and grease, specifically including “excessive quantities of highly corrosive wastes, doughnut grease and other pollutants.” The damages claimed include clogged pipes which caused raw sewage leaks and required a part of the system to be shut down. Krispy Kreme reportedly refused to pay the County’s repair costs of $1.9 million one month before the suit was filed.
The allegations of this suit have created a variety of media quips remarking on what effect doughnuts must have on the human body if they can actually destroy a sewer system. That’s a scary thought for fans of Krispy Kreme doughnuts. This includes my wife Sara, who can spot the blinking red light at a Krispy Kreme shop blocks away.
