Hyndburn grandma finds false tooth in her loaf of bread
WHAT A SHOCK! Grandmother Rosanna Lord was disgusted when she found a false tooth in a slice of bread she had toasted.
A GRANDMOTHER said she got the shock of her life when she found a false tooth in her sandwich.
Rosanna Lord, 52, was tucking into her supper while watching television when she found what she believed to be a tooth and part of a gum from a set of dentures in one of her slices of bread.
Mrs Lord, who lives in Queen Street in Clayton-Le-Moors, with her husband Terrence Hayes, 66, had bought the loaf of Warburtons soft grain bread from the Co-op store, in Pickup Street.
She said: “I felt peckish so I put on a boiled egg and toast.
“I sat down to eat it and I had one bite and then a second and then I found something hard.
“I said to my husband, ‘it looks like a tooth’ and it was.
“I was sick after I found it - you don’t expect to find somebody’s tooth.”
Mrs Lord put the tooth in the fridge with the rest of her sandwich and called the bread company to complain, who asked her to send the object in for examination.
Mrs Lord said: “They asked if the tooth was mine but it was definitely not — I have my own teeth.
“I was not very happy, things like that should not happen - I could have choked on it.”
Mrs Lord, who has three grandchildren, said she often bakes her own loaves or buys fresh bread from the bakery in the supermarket and said she would be doing that more often since the incident.
She said: “Every time I look at bread now I wonder whose teeth are in it.
“Nobody’s perfect but it was still a shock.” A spokesperson for Warburton’s said they were looking into the complaint and would be carrying out a full food safety investigation.
She said: “We invite all customers with complaints to give the customer care team a call. We would need to see the product itself to be able to investigate.
"The quality of our bread is what our business is built on and we weill be taking this seriously and having a look into it.”
