Plaintiff was injured by biting into a fishhook imbedded in a plug of chewing tobacco bought from an independent dealer and manufactured by defendant. There was evidence that another person had discovered a foreign particle in another plug made by defendant, but he did not know the exact identity of the substance. Held, that while the plaintiff's injury alone cannot raise an inference of negligence, the additional evidence of the second incident was sufficient to present the question to the jury, which found for the plaintiff. Caudle v. F. M. Bohannon Tobacco Co., 220 N. C. 105, 16 S. E. (2d) 680 (1941).
