Exploding Churros

Here is why all recipes should be thoroughly tested before publication. The Chilean newspaper La Tercera printed a recipe for churros in 2004. Now they must pay damages varying from $279 to $48,000 to eleven woman who were injured trying 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.
