Was it the pedal on the left hand side? I'm betting whomever installed it was new (or had no buisness holding a wrench in the first place) and didn't know that that the left pedal has a left hand thread on it. They forced it in and stripped the threads of the crank. It's possible it could be re-tapped but I would still politely insist on a new crank and set of pedals. It really shouldn't be a problem and is nothing to get incredibly bent out of shape over.
