    Something bad in my bag of cookies

    I purchased a bag of cookies and found a welding rod in it. I filed a complaint with the company, they investigated, and sent me a letter confirming the rod was from a bagger. They did not rule out compensation for me---do I have a lawsuit?

    yes, when my husband stuck his hand in the bag to get several cookies, he was stuck by the rod and cut his hand open. The rod has a sharpened tip on it. He is the one who found the rod obviously. As he has heart problems he has very thin blood because of the meds, he bled for a long long time. I thought I was going to have to take him to get a stitch.

    I recommend consulting with a few local personal injury attorneys and see if anyone he is willing to take the case on a contingency basis. They should also be able to tell you whether your suit has merit, and if so, what type of damages you may be able to get.
