Hardened Large "Sugar" Pieces In Cereal
Posted by on
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Post Frosted Shredded Wheat - Hardened Sugar PiecesI had recently found, ( after chewing, putting it in my mouth ) a large piece of rock hard sugar in a box of; POST FROSTED SHREDDED WHEAT it caused a tooth of mine that I was in the process of having work done on to crack, at first I thought I had bit into a rock, after spitting it out, and examining it, I could see that it was a large, hardened piece of sugar, ( or so it at least appeared to be ), the damage it did to my tooth caused me to go to the dentist and eventually have my tooth removed. I contacted the company, they sent a courier to pick it up and have it analyzed. A few weeks later after hearing nothing back, I called them , they admitted that yes, it was a large piece of sugar, and that the proper steps where going to be taken to insure it wouldn't happen again. In the meantime, I sent the bill and dentist x-rays and assessments for my tooth to the company. I waited, and heard nothing, I finally called after them 2 months, whereas they said " If I would have had the beforehand work on my tooth completed before the incident had happened, then the damage caused by the sugar piece may not have occurred " and even though they admitted responsibility, not only to me on the telephone, but also in writing, refused to pay the dental bill that I had submitted, and instead offered to pay a minimal small fraction of it.

I have since then tried to find some way where I could make this known, to make them see how terribly wrong, and irresponsible it was of them. I hope that someone can possibly help.

you stated you were having that tooth worked on. there is some law that states prior damages are excluded.

well, I think that a human body is worth at least $1 billion . A tooth is a very important part of a human body , specially if its a front tooth , cuz if youre missing a front tooth , it makes ya look stupid , too stupid too even get yourself laid and that leads to psychologicial stress which could wreck your entire life . I say sue them for $1 million if its a front tooth . $500,000 if its not .
madconsumer on 2008-03-01:
if you do get a settlement, you won't get much over 1 grand. there was no real danger to life here. a tooth can be replaced for 600 dollars, so asking for 1 million will get you laughed at.
fascismsux on 2008-03-01:
madconsumer- you got to be kiddin me ?- Only a desperate person would sell a tooth for 1k. How much will ya take for one of your front teeth ? Your argument is like saying that if ya have a farrari and someone destroys it that they can give you the value of the cheapest replacement (say , a hugo ) and that would be reasonable . is that what youre saying ?

I can see why they wouldn't cover the tooth. In their insurance companies eyes the tooth was already damaged. However, they should have inspected the cereal better. How was the consumer supposed to know that hardened sugar rock was NOT just a regular piece of cereal? They should at least pay to fix the tooth seeing as they made it worse and it was their product that did it.

Is the picture that you've posted the actual size of the sugar lump? 'Cause that looks like you would have SEEN that it was unprocessible by your "under-construction" tooth and would have been able to make the conscious decision, "Hmmmm, gee.... That looks like it might hurt, maybe I should pass." Then what? You decided, "No, I think I'll try it anyway," (Fully forgetting your tooth was possibly weakened by the dentistry work you'd had done?) Personally, I don't get it. Where is the common sense?

Adding that you were probably warned by you dentist to avoid such crunchy foods... (I know I was when I was going through a root canal, which happens in steps and between steps they tell you to be careful what you put in your mouth) ???

PleasedAsPunch on 2008-03-01:

tnchuck100 on 2008-03-01:

Rat Feces
Posted by on
Rating: 1/51
WATERBURY, CONNECTICUT -- I am currently 8 months pregnant. When I wake up hungry, I usually pour a bowl of cereal. Last night I opened a brand new box of Honey Bunches of Oats and poured a bowl of cereal. In my cereal was a dropping of rat feces. I immediately threw up and have not been able to eat anything all day. I know this was no fault of the grocery store because the box and bag was not damaged and the feces was in the sealed bag. I'm completely disgusted!!!!

Have you contacted the store or used the contact info on the box to report the issue? Have you taken photos of the box, the cereal and object you found in the cereal?
Stuff happens, you were upset. Report it
madconsumer on 2013-05-30:
they could be bits of burnt cereal.
have the alleged items been positively identified?

you can report food issues here:

I hate to be the one to tell you this, but the FDA allows a certain amount of "debris" which includes animal parts---like beetles, etc. All cereals are prone to have this stuff in them as they are made of grain and insects, rats, etc. like to eat and reside in graineries, etc.

In your case, do two things: go online to post.com and contact them. Tell them of the situation, etc. and that you want your money back. "Satisfaction guaranteed." They should send you at least one coupon for a free box of Post cereal. Also, if you saved your store receipt, you can take the box of cereal back for a refund.

Next time, eat in subdued lighting and ignore the "crunch crunch crunch."
