Help, I Found a Foreign Object in My Food! What are My Legal Rights?
Finding something in your food at a restaurant that wasn’t supposed to be there, or in takeout, can be shocking and unsettling. This is especially true if you’re halfway done with your meal then look down to see a piece of band-aid or broken ceramic bits and pieces that weren’t meant to be there in the first place. Restaurants owe you something called duty of care that holds them accountable and makes sure that their customers are kept safe at all times by them making reasonable effort to ensure that this is the case. In the case of food preparation, restaurants must double check that the ingredients they are using do not have any foreign objects and that they are sourced from reputable vendors. Customers who find foreign objects in their food may have to contend with lacerations, internal injuries, puncture of mouth tissue and septum, or even shattering and breaking of teeth and dentures. All these injuries are expensive to treat, and we see no reason why you should pay for your own medical treatment if someone else’s negligence was the proximate cause of the same. If you found a foreign object in your food, you may be eligible for compensation by way of money damages, and we’re here to help with that.

Foreign objects in food can cause any of the following:
- Choking – if the object is large enough, the individual might get choked due to the size of the object, or the roughness of its edges as the individual tries to swallow it. If there isn’t anyone in sight to offer help such as in the case of a takeout order, the individual may end up choking and losing their life.
- Lacerations and puncture wounds may occur in the mouth, throat, the stomach, and even the small and large intestines as the body attempts to digest it. This can then lead to internal bleeding as the object moves through the digestive system, causing hemorrhaging and death if not caught in a timely manner
