Mandatory Churrocide

Another of The Man's plans to keep the common people down:
Chile's Supreme Court has ordered a newspaper to pay $125,000 to 13 people who suffered burns while trying out a published recipe for churros, a popular Latin American snack of dough fried in hot oil.

[...]

Days after the recipe was published in the paper's "Woman" magazine in 2004, hospitals around the country began treating women for burns suffered when the dough boiling in oil suddenly shot out of kitchen pots.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that the dough boiling in oil suddenly shot out of kitchen pots.

Ann Althouse is so nonpartisan that the dough and the oil shot out of the cooking pot.

Isn't this just a version of <a href = "http://www.articlesbase.com/home-improvement-articles/defective-propane-turkey-fryers-1379964.html>turkey fryer lawsuits in the States</a>? If their tort system was up to standards there'd be samosa lawsuits in India and Gereral Tso's chicken lawsuits in China.

I dunno, it's more like problems with instructions rather than problems with technology.
