Simply a Rose to brighten your day,
And maybe lessen the cares in your way;
And also, too, to help you to know,
That in knowing you, many others grow!
I don't want to sound mean, but as parents of toddlers, it is our responsibility to thoroughly check all foods that we feed toddlers. They don't yet know the differences in texture of things so are more apt to swallow and choke on something that doesn't belong.
I don't know that I wouldn't have gone ahead and accepted the $ 20 plus coupons. They at least were attempting to offer you something for your inconvenience. I think you would have to prove negligence in order to win in a lawsuit.
I've even found stones in beans. That just makes me be careful with products that I purchase as a whole. I think, in general, the food manufacturers in the U.S. do a pretty good job in maintaining safe food products. I think they take a lot of care in what they supply to us but mistakes can happen no matter how careful they are.
Just because the light says "walk" doesn't mean that you should go ahead and cross the street without looking to see if it's really safe.
I am shocked that they thought $20 and a few coupons could suffice for what you went through due to their negligence! This was your childs life! I would do whatever it takes to make them realize that this matter was a lot more serious than they made it to be...what are the chances?
God alone knows what they put in ready-meals.
As for fighting with the company... you have your son and that is what really matters.
Even if the company went out of business tomorrow there will be another one out there offering sub-standard goods.
Just learn from this that you dont trust ANYBODY with your little boy.Future bonding with grandparents
Here's what I think, the company is totally at fault. You cant make food for infants and toddlers that contain materials such as a bone. This food is way different from food given to adults and older children. Now yes you can check the food as your preparing it but you should never expect to find bones in food that was produced for infants and toddlers. The company should have been more cautious when they were preparing it. I know how you feel though, I have a 13month old and if she choked off something such as a bone or a stone that was found in her infant/toddler food, I would be pissed. By the way, does the package even warn you that bones may be found in the food???
For those saying don't worry about it, it's because they are comparing a bone found in toddler food to a bone found in table/adult food. You can't make that comparison because older person can notice a bone in their mouth where as a baby could care less.Lying parents
