A razor blade croissant does not sound appetizing, and after metal shards were found in one Dunkin’ Donuts’ customer’s croissant — the uploaded images soon went viral — there was some explaining to do. A woman this week from Connecticut who ordered the normally tasty treat from her local Dunkin’ Donuts and realized there was a razor blade in her food after cutting her mouth, Yahoo! News shares this Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013.
The razor blade croissant was found in Ms. Priscilla Salas’ order while she was making her usual stop to Dunkin’ Donuts in local Windham. After biting into the treat, she suddenly felt something very hard and sharp cut into her lip. The sharp sensation was in fact coming from a few metal shards baked into the croissant itself, a couple of which were nearly a quarter long.
Ms. Salas admits she was horrified, thinking “Oh my god, is it what I think it is?”
Fortunately, her mouth is expected to heal just fine, but Ms. Salas is worried for children’s safety if a razor blade croissant (or God forbid, a scissor donut) found its way into their hands.
“Could be a little kid eating it and not noticing it, and just next thing you know, mouth bleeding or something. So it is concerning,” she added in a statement to a news station.
It is believed the metal shards found within the croissant were from not a razor blade, but a box cutter, said police and Dunkin’ Donuts officials. after investigating.
“They felt it was probably a frozen croissant from distribution center and they were going to find the exact location of it.”
Dunkin’ Donuts offered a formal apology to the woman, dubbing this unappetizing find — with the images going viral in just a short time — an isolated incident that they are working on making sure never happens again. Ms. Salas is also being given a gift card by the company for her troubles.
