Mr. World Fitness Sues Over Cereal Tooth Killer

12/23/2009 2:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

He's a six-time Mr. World Fitness champion, a jacked-up physical specimen -- but Franco Carlotto claims he wasn't strong enough to take down a bowl of cereal ... that literally broke his face.

Mr. World Fitness Sues Over Cereal Tooth Killer
It's all part of the greatest lawsuit ever -- Franco is suing Whole Foods, claiming a "defective" brand of "Whole Foods Market Organic Everyday Value Organic High Fiber Cereal" broke his teeth when he chomped down on a "portion of the cereal that had solidified to a hardened mass."

In his suit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Franco claims he's furious because Whole Foods gave no warning of the "particular risk of hardening of the cereal" or "solidification of the cereal." Weird, considering most cereals get soggy in milk ... right?!?

Carlotto claims he sought medical treatment for the injury -- he's suing for an unspecified amount.

No word on what kind of milk -- if any -- Carlotto used in his cereal.

Teeth don't just break. Is he sure he didn't have decay in them which would cause them to break easily.

That's too bad. He should have choked on it instead.

This seems like a clear case: the workers compensation coverage insurance of his employer should cover his medical issues and any associated disability. There will be a big up-hill battle to get anything more.

If your sense of taste kicked in later, to reflect the condition of your blood stream instead of what the food tasted like, and you ate refined sugar, by the time your liver and blood stream were dealing with it, the taste would have you horking into the porcelain water hazard. Why abuse yourself with sugar? Stop that! It turns your brain to caramel. Eat your veggies. Mixed veggies with ginger sauce. Hmmmm. Ginger sauce!

Once I had a molar split in half while eating Trader Joe's cornflakes (made in Canada, people!), but I never thought to sue them. Cereal kills!

I split a very healthy tooth on a hardened aglomeration eating a bowl of Kashi Cereal. Supplier paid for new crown, etc., after Dentist sent xrays, etc., to them advising the tooth had no decay or was damaged in any way. It can and does happen.

Not saying the guy is using steroids, but I'm wondering if steroids are known to have an adverse effect on bones and teeth.

What a p-u-s-s-y for filing a lawsuit. Maybe the problem is with his teeth, not the cereal. Or maybe the problem is with his brain, hey, if the cereal is rock hard, how about don't be so persistent with biting down on it. Does the guy bite hard candies too?
