Q: I purchased a kellogg Eggo waffle and wife found a huge bite on unopened sealed packaging. What are the remedies here?

I purchased a kellogg Eggo waffle products and to my surprise my wife found a huge bite on the waffle inside the new packaging this morning May 24. It is sealed packaging and we can see clearly huge bite on one of the waffle.

What do you think the case remedy for this?

I found this is very disgusting and won't buy any waffle products anymore from them.

A: Now that you have posted this everyone will want one like that.

Seriously, you would have a serious food contamination case only if there were significant damages, meaning that someone got seriously sick from tainted food. The cases that have garnered attention include the McDonald's coffee case where the elderly lady had 3rd degree burns over 15% of her body centered on her lap, and required more than 6 surgeries to repair her skin, and cases where people with allergies go into anaphylactic shock requiring hospitalization.

Certainly this is disgusting and you should write to Kellogg with photos, maybe they will send you coupons. Take it back to the store you bought it from.
