Razor blade croissant: Woman bites into metal shard in Dunkin' Donuts croissant

A razor blade found in a croissant, which came from a Connecticut Dunkin' Donuts, is under investigation today. Priscilla Salas found out the hard way that the razor blade was in the croissant she was eating because when she bit down on it, she felt sharp metal, according to WVIT NBC Connecticut on Dec. 10.

The discovery frightened Salas because if there was a razor blade in her morning croissant, could there be more in others and what if a child bit into a razor blade? These were the racing thoughts going through the woman’s mind. She called police and the Dunkin' Donuts on the Boston Post Road in Windham, where she purchased the croissant.

The Dunkin' Donuts corporate office thought that the razor blade could actually be part of a box cutter that broke off when someone was trying to cut through a frozen box of the croissants. Dunkin Donuts told Salas that they would find out the exact location where the metal shards entered the bakery goods.

Dunkin' Donuts released a statement saying that the experience that Salas had with the sharp metal shards was an isolated incident. They also said they are concerned about the safety of their customers and working with the Windham, Connecticut store to find out exactly what happened.

The company apologized and said they would be sending her a gift card, but Salas said she wasn’t after any money, she just wants the public to be aware.
