I found a fingernail in my frozen food product. I contacted them and they want me to send the object back, what should I do?

I called the 1800 number on the box and let them know what happened. I found the fingernail in my mouth after eating a spoonful of the product. The woman I spoke to, apologized and offered me coupons. She also said she will mail me a ziplock bag in 7-10 days so that I can send the fingernail to them. Other than being disgusted, I was not hurt. Should I send the fingernail to them? What advice can you give me on what to do?

Well, since you were not injured, you really have no cause of action. You can't recover for being disgusted. I would accept their coupons and send them the fingernail.

Unless it was a really shocking finger nail - nine inches or the like - I agree with my colleagues.
