Default The danger of eating peanuts.

Was eating some dry roasted peanuts. They are tasty and everything went great until I bit down and one of the peanuts was actually a peanut-shaped rock and I broke a chunk off one of my molars.

I hate when that happens.

Seriously, lawyer up.

I've never had this problem with Planters nuts. My wife bought Great Value brand for some reason and not even 1/3 of the way through a 16 oz container this happens. Luckily it doesn't hurt, apparently no nerve is exposed but I will definitely have to pay a visit to my dentist. Not sure if trying to get Wal-Mart to pay for my tooth would work though.

I've experience similar situations. Sucks for sure. Can't hurt to let Wally World know what happened. This is how product recalls start...

It wouldn't be Wal-Mart, it would be the manufacturer of the product.

Great Value is the Wal-Mart store brand, who knows who actually manufactures it. They are the one and only distributor.

I've got a can of Kirkland Signature peanuts on my credenza behind me. Just looked at the label, and there is only Kirkland Signature's information, as well as Costco's information. No information about who actually created the product. I suspect the labelling on the Great Value brand is similar.

Best bet would be to take it back to your local Wally World, along with the rock found, and inform customer service of the issue. Will they do anything about the broken tooth? Doubtful.

Sorry to hear, must be a PITA.

I love me my Planters Cocktail peanuts, don't eat any others, they taste the best to me.

Same thing with their label, just says distributed by Wal-Mart. Eh, I'll live. I'd have to dig the rock out of the kitchen trash, it was pretty much the perfect match for a half-peanut.

I think that "distributed by" stuff is bullshit. I want to know where it was MADE. It's like the post office being the "distributor" of my bills.
