i took a bite of a Reese's cup and found a crown from a tooth inside. I didn't know what it was I first believes it was a peanut and kept it in my mouth. But when I bit down it was hard and I took it out my mouth and noticed it was a crown from a molar. I was disgusted and put it back in package and put it in plastic bag and went home. I then called the number in package to report it and was offered 3 gift cards for free candy. I left my info and they said they will send me a envelope to mail it in. I then went to store where I purchased it and made a report. It has been 3 days and I still feel sick in my stomach. I haven't been able to eat anything solid. I've been eating crackers. I am scared to eat anything that I can't see what's in it. I would like to go to get checked for diseases.
You haven't asked a question. A refund and coupons is not unusual for the company to offer in this type of situation.
I understand wanting to get checked out. You can ask if they'll pay for your medical expense. If it turns out, worst case scenario, that you got infected with something, talk to a local injury lawyer.
I am not your lawyer unless we enter into an engagement agreement in writing. This is general information that is given for legal education only. It is not legal advice, and it may not work for your specific situation. I strongly encourage you to consult with a local lawyer to get legal advice and help with your specific situation at your earliest convenience. I am licensed to practice law in Arizona.
Without damages, a lawsuit would be an exercise in futility.
Sorry this happened. Call the number on the package and tell them free candy is the last thing you have on your mind right now. Ask to speak to someone higher up in their claims department. Tell them you want to resolve this claim amicably but finding a human tooth in your once favorite candy has made you sick and worried about your health. Make a demand for a reasonable amount. Don't send the tooth back until you settle. Don't know if this will get resolved. This is not a litigation matter.
