Razor blade croissant: Cut mouth from blades in treat, box cutter the source?

See also

Biting into a razor blade croissant has to be painful, and it did leave a Dunkin’ Donuts customer with a cut mouth after finding metal blades in her usual scrumptious treat this week. What is believed to be the remnants of a box cutter somehow got into a Connecticut woman’s food, and she’s using the scary incident to warn others to be careful when eating out, even at their favorite locales, reports this Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013.

Priscilla Salas had her first bite of a razor blade croissant earlier this month when sinking her teeth into the pastry, only to feel pain in her mouth and a cut lip after long shards of metal were discovered baked within the food. The woman said that the shards simply floored her, and that it was the last thing she expected — but wants to warn parents especially to keep an eye on their kids from experiencing a freak accident like that in the future.

"I was floored completely," she said.

Dunkin’ Donuts Corporate was soon contacted by Salas, who apologized and believed that the razor blade croissant certainly wasn’t on the menu; they believed that a box cutter had likely somehow come into contact with the usually tasty treat. The offices are sending Salas a compensatory gift card, and are in the process of locating the distribution center that the razor blades might have derived from.

Despite her cut mouth, Salas will not be pressing charges against the popular breakfast locale (she was a regular customer of her Dunkin’ Donuts in Connecticut). She just hopes that by telling her story, concludes the press release, others will be wary when trying to sink their teeth into any meal they haven’t made themselves, as one doesn’t want to walk away with a mouthful of sharp, metal objects, especially a razor blade croissant.
