A: Sorry to hear about your trouble with gummies. Your question is difficult to answer without additional information. First, were you injured as a result of the metal? Did you break a tooth, cut your mouth? If you did not injure yourself, you probably don't have any damages, and without damages, you cannot win your case. If you did injure yourself, you can bring a claim against the maker, but you will need to prove your case. Did anyone else witness you eating the candy and pulling a piece of metal out of your mouth? If so, you may have a good case. If you did not have any witnesses, it will likely be your word against there's, making your case more difficult.
