Take those dead plants back!!
It is inevitable that "some" new veggie plants simply won't make it. If you are buying at the big box retailers such as Loews and/or Home Depot - take the dead plant back for an exchange or refund. I always retain my receipt, veggie tag and the small container that the plant was purchased in until the time that I am comfortable the plant is well on its way to harvest.
By retaining the pot, the tag and receipt, the retailers never give you a problem, they give you another veggie plant!
Don't hesitate, it is money!!
