How can I remove the "individualItem" object from the pendingOrders collection using the code below?

                IEnumerable<PendingOrders> pendingOrders = dbHelper.getPendingOrders(_mode);

                Item individualItem;

                foreach (PendingOrders order in pendingOrders)
                {
                   // foreach (Item individualItem in order.Items)
                    for (int index = 0; index < order.Items.Count; index++ )
                    {
                        individualItem = new Item();
                        individualItem = order.Items[index];

                        _webServiceURL = string.Format(CCG_GETQUANTITY_URL + "{0}/?token={1}", individualItem.CCGSKU, _ccg_token.ToString());
                        List<CCG_OrderData> ccgData = getCCG_ItemData(_webServiceURL);

                        //-- if the number of items on order is less than what they have in stock, proceed
                        if (individualItem.Quantity <= ccgData[0].Balance_On_Hand)
                        {
                            individualItem.InStock = true;
                            //-- TO DO: add in address verification for US orders
                            //var status = verifyOrderAddress(order, "?token=" + _ccg_token.ToString());
                        }
                        else
                        {
                            individualItem.Remove(index);      <-- getting an error here saying no definition for Remove() exists
                        }
                    }


                    {

                    }
                }

I think you want to do something like this: order.Items.remove(index)
However, removing the object may cause an error in your loop.
You might need to collect all the items that will be removed during the evaluation loop and then remove the items in a separate loop based on the items that were flagged.

using

order.Items.Remove(index)

I now get a message saying it has an invalid argument.

I actually have

index--;

as the line right after removing it, so I shouldn't lose any of the objects in the collection

Seems like "remove" usually wants the object while "removeat" has an index for the argument.  Is "RemoveAt" an option for order.Items?
