This Zara Customer Is Suing After Finding A Dead Mouse Sewn Into Her Dress
Zara has responded to a lawsuit filed by a woman who, no joke, found an actual dead mouse sewn into her dress.
Cailey Fiesel from New York bought a dress from the Connecticut store in July, but when she wore it she noticed a “disturbingly pungent odor” and later felt a “loose string from her dress rubbing against her leg.”
She told the NY Post that she “saw the little leg that was coming out of the seam… which was really horrifying.
“I froze – I was paralysed with fear… My eyes saw that it was a mouse but my brain told myself it can’t be."
After realising it wasn’t a loose string at all, Cailey sued Zara for unspecified damages.
The retail giant has now responded to the lawsuit, telling PEDESTRIAN.TV -
Zara USA is aware of the allegation and we are investigating the matter further.
The brand has stringent quality controls and health and safety standards worldwide that are followed and met in manufacturing, including stitching and pressing.
We are committed to ensuring that all of our products meet these rigorous requirements.
We hope you never have to find a dead rodent in your clothing. Yeesh.
