Woman Finds Razor Blade in Burger King Salad

An Arizona woman visiting the Flagstaff Burger King found a razor blade in her salad. An employee admitted to accidentally leaving the blade on a shelf above the bin of lettuce. The company says razor blades are not allowed in food preparation areas.

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — An Arizona woman eating at Burger King says she found a razor blade in her salad.

Jennifer Ashley tells KTVK-TV she immediately showed the manager Wednesday at a Flagstaff branch of the fast-foot chain.

Burger King says an employee admitted the blade left on a shelf accidentally fell into a tub of lettuce. The company says razor blades are not allowed in or near food preparation areas.

The employee has since been fired.

Ashley says she received a refund and a free salad. She says she doesn't plan to press charges. She just wants people to be aware of what they are eating, even in a restaurant.
