/an/, I need some advice...

I was about to feed my puppy Merrick dry food, and I noticed something green in the bowl...

Turns out there was a piece of green plastic embedded in one of the kibbles.

Is this grounds to sue? I mean, I've fed her Merrick for quite a while now. Who knows how many more bags are like this. I know a little piece of plastic wont kill her, but she's my baby, and I'm upset.

Sue?

Lol accidents happen, don't be a dick. Take the bag back to the store you purchased it from, tell them what happened and get them to give you a refund (free dog food).

Was the plastic free floating in the bag or actually embedded in the food?
>>
>>2005440

unless something actually happened then you have no grounds to sue. your delicate disposition isn't likely to convince a judge to award you any money on its own

>green plastic embedded in one of the kibbles.

Never mind. If you want to cause a stink, show them the kibble, make a big deal about it. They might do a product recall on it if it's bad enough. Take photos and send a message to the company as well. Or just ignore the store and call the company directly.

>the dirt cheap and shelf stable food I buy in a big bag was made in a less than perfect factory
shocking.

Accidents do happen, but if they are causing harm to my pet, I'm not just going to ask for a NEW bag of shitty food.

>>2005446
Merrick isn't that bad. Recommend something better.

>>2005450
Half right.
>>
>>2005446
This board is always recommending petfoodadvisor. Merrick got 4 - 5/5 stars.

uhhhhhhhhh

Do you have large sums of money you're happy to invest in legal costs? What damages are you asking redress for, given that your dog is completely fine?
>>
>>2005463
>>2005460
Didn't say my dog was completely fine.
>>
>>2005468

how about you stop being cagey little shithead and say what happened to your dog. if it had a little indigestion and maybe whined once or twice, i'm sorry, but that doesn't sound like something any judge is ever going to side with you about in any meaningful way. if your pet dies or requires trips to the vet, you may be able to be compensated for vet costs, but again, that's probably the limit of it.

your energy would be better spent figuring out how to actually earn the money you're looking to make off of what is essentially a triviality
>>
>>2005472
Trust me, don't need the money. I want the company to do something about it and a complaint online probably wont do anything.
>>
>>2005475

>hello merrick
>plastic in bag
>blah blah not buying you anymore
>unfortunate this happened
>love, trust-fund timmy

snail mail
>>
>>2005475

it's pretty fucking unlikely that you can do anything more to make them "do something about it" than let them know about what happened. if enough people have complained about it, there is obviously a problem. if it was an anomaly nothing will change because nothing needs to be changed -- shit happens sometimes.

You can always sue somebody.
>>
>>2005468

It's very clear from your post that your dog is fine. Don't be silly, no one is going to assume you'd have just coyly avoided mentioning your baby's tragic illness and your spiralling vet costs and how your husband left you, your family fell apart and you've had to sell your home due to the stress and trauma of a puppy shitting out a bit of plastic.

And sure, if you want to sue, you can sue. It's your money, hire as many lawyers as you want. So long as you're not expecting any compensation, you can spend as much money as you want harassing Merrick. But by itself, no, a bit of plastic is not likely to result in product recall or any redress for you.
>>
OP is used to giving his dog a blow job. The polymer that makes up the plastic causes impotence and now his dog can't get a woody for him to blow on anymore.

I AWARD OP 1 MILLION DOLLARS FOR DAMAGES AND A LIFETIME SUPPLY OF DOG DICK SHAPED DILDOS TO MAKE UP FOR WHAT HE HAS LOST.

OP IS A FAG.

I will never recommend Merrick now that they are owned by Purina, expect more quality issues in the future.

>there are millions of dogs eating that shit and growing big and strong

there are also millions of dogs dying and being put down because of rickets and other nutritive-induced diseases. that said, purina is a little scummy, but they're not THAT bad on the continuum. you could do a lot worse than that
