After you’ve swallowed a foreign object in your food, the typical response from the food manufacturer/food preparer is to offer your free products. While that might sound nice, it might not be enough. Eating a foreign object can cause serious physical and mental injuries.
Make sure you do the following:
- Notify the establishment. Make sure the establishment creates a report that you swallowed a foreign object.
- Save the evidence. Keep the food/drink that contained the object. Keep the object that was swallowed if there is anything remaining. Keep the receipt of your purchase. Take photographs of all of the items and of the injury you sustained.
- Contact an attorney. Without an attorney, your complaint may not be taken seriously. A skilled attorney can make the establishment take action and remedy the situation.
