Take photos and video tape of the package, the torn and the scan no. on the can. Take the can to the store; have them sign a receipt that they received the can and file an accident report right there and then and obtain a copy for your records.

Wait and they will probably provide you with some compensation. Obtain a copy of your sore tongue and any bleeding, if any.
