  1. And your injury is what exactly?

  2. no
    Were you injured? Did you even eat the pizza? You are entitled to a refund.
    By the way, vegan pizza should be illegal--but that's my personal opinion.

You should seek the advise of an attorney who can explore all aspects of your question. This communication does not form an attorney client relationship.


  3. If you did not eat the pizza, yo are limited to getting a refund. Contact the company that makes the pizza and complain. You might get some copons.

  4. I'm not sure if a lab tested it, or this is your belief.


  5. If you have no injury, you have no case. You can get a refund, but with no injury, you are spinning your wheels.

  6. You could sue under the consumer fraud act for three times the value of the pizza. Maybe get all vegans together who have eaten this accidentally and institute a class action. Probably not worth it. I'd call them up and demand a refund. If you make a big enough stink, I'm sure they will oblige.
