What to do if I bought pop at the store and one of the cans I was drinking from had a kind of pill in it?

What can I do after I e-mailed the company and they just want me to send everything to them?

If you were not injured or sickened, there is nothing to do: the legal system only provides compensation for actual injuries or costs caused by another's fault, so if you were not hurt or did not incure significant medical costs, there is no point in taking legal action--you will be unable to recover much (or possibly any) money. If you were hurt or had to go the hospital, then you should consult with a personal injury attorney, to evaluate the strength of your case and what it might be worth, before deciding on a course of action.
