Plaintiff's husband purchased canned sauerkraut juice from a retail grocer, who, in turn, had purchased it from the defendant, a wholesale grocery company. The kraut juice, which had not been packed or canned by the defendant, contained deleterious substances that made the plaintiff ill. In an action for damages, the plaintiff recovered on the basis of an implied warranty of fitness for human consumption. Defendant appealed. Held, judgment sustained. Swengel v. F. & E. Wholesale Grocery Co., 147 Kan. 555, 77 P. (2d) 930 (1938).
