H.E.B Complaint - Hard Rocky Substance In Lean Meat

Review by 88giggles on 2009-10-12
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS -- As I was eating my burger the third bite all I felt was a horribly sharp pain and heard my tooth crack. It has been a week cannot eat anything but soup and cannot close my top and bottom teeth to relax jaw because my bottom tooth hits a nerve where my tooth is cracked. I need to be contacted on this matter so my tooth can be fixed or I may have to contact a lawyer. [snip]

Dude, don't post personal information on this site. That includes YOUR information.

Your going to have to prove it was the meat. They're going to tell you that it could have been the bread, or the vegetables, or condiments. This will be an uphill battle for you, Good Luck.

I'll give you a call later tonight, giggles, and we can discuss it. In the meantime, go to the dentist if at all possible. They'll work with you on a payment schedule. If you are truly waiting to recover from H.E.B. (even if that's possible) before you go to the dentist, how about giving them a call for speedier action? Why suffer when you don't need to?

Do you really think they are going to come across this website, find your posting, call you on the number you listed, then send you a check? Get your mouth fixed!

I wonder how many carnk calls this guy has had since he posted this?

and why hasn't he or she gone to a dentist yet?

letting it sit will just make it worse
and even if the company is liable, they might not be liable for any infections that occur as a result of waiting to see a dentist

Spiderman: Don't refer to calls from personal injury attorneys as "crank calls." ha,ha.

True story here. An employee chomped down on one of those "new" KFC pot pies a number of years ago. He broke a tooth on a chicken bone and promptly took the pot pie and his broken tooth right back to the location. They actually paid to have his tooth repaired. I wouldn't suggest that for anyone now looking to have some dental work done for free in case someone might get any ideas.

This happens a lot more often than people realize. If you eat meat, poultry or seafood you may encounter bone fragments or part of a shell.

ZZ, I wonder why no one ever thinks of this. Does anybody ever remember that ground meat is GROUND MEAT? That it once had bones in it? And that there is a possibility you might bite into a Bone?

I wonder who the OP would sue if he ground the meat himself and got a bone?

OP, go to the dentist.

Kind of like fishbones, huh ZZ!

The longer you wait, giggles, the harder it will be to prove your broken tooth came from the meat than by any other thing you ate since your tooth broke. Hope you don't grind your teeth at night, as they may claim that broke your tooth. It may be too late....

So true, DB.

I was just thinking the same thing... that waiting and waiting will make it a "cold case" that they won't care to investigate
