A judge has apparently found a snack food study a little hard to swallow.
A Pennsylvania man who claims Doritos are dangerous will have to make his case without the help of a retired chemistry professor.
Charles Grady sued Frito-Lay in 1995, claiming his throat was damaged because of the rigid, triangular shape of the company's snack chips.
His attorney wanted to use the study by a retired University of Pittsburgh professor showing how much force and saliva is needed to break up the chips so they can be safely swallowed.
A judge has refused to admit the study as evidence, saying it was a-kin to a high school science fair project and did not meet scietific standards.
