Found worm in food

Ask a Lawyer

Question

Country: United States of America
State: Indiana

I purchased frozen vegetables and after eating half of the package, I found a very large part of a cabbage worm. I contacted the store and their supplier and received token coupons and an apology. I feel that this was not enough to compensate for the revulsion and anguish I endured...I would like to know if it is legal for me to auction this worm on EBay? I am not sure, since there was no injury that a lawsuit is feasible and I feel that the auction would alert people to check their foods closely before eating them.

Answer

You can auction it yes.
