    If any webs or damage are found ...

    Check your order immediately upon receipt and notify customer service at 317-634-7728 within 10 days if any defects or discrepancies are found.

    If any webs or damage are found, the canister and fuel tank will be replaced.


    I think the first sentence is correct, but what do you think of the second sentence? damage isn't a plural noun.

    Is "If any webs are found, or if any damage is, ..." correct?

    Re: If any webs or damage are found ...

    It's fine, but you could also reverse the order and have the plural noun at the end to avoid the issue: if any damage or webs are found.
