Exploding Churros $125,000, The publisher of La Tercera newspaper in Chile must pay individual damages to 11 women and two men ranging from as little as $279 to $48,000 for one woman whose burns were particularly severe.
The high court’s ruling was announced on Monday, seven years after the readers burned themselves while trying out the recipe.
Judges determined that the newspaper failed to fully test it before publication, and that if readers followed the recipe exactly, the churros had a good chance of exploding once the oil reached the suggested temperature. Grupo Copesa, which publishes the paper, said it will abide by the ruling.
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.
Churros, sometimes known as the Spanish doughnut, are elongated strips of pastry, which are deep-fried and then dusted with sugar and dunked in a thick-hot chocolate sauce.
