A California woman was lucky to check her Burger King burger for onions before biting into it. Upon searching her food, Yolanda Orozco found a razor blade inside one of her Burger King burgers.
The razor blade was found deep within the burger, hidden underneath the cheese. Had Yolanda bitten into her Burger King burger, it’s possible she could have suffered severe injury to her mouth.
Police launched a six-hour investigation of the restaurant, but concluded that the razor blade was not placed there intentionally. Instead, it seems the razor blade slipped into the meal after falling from a cabinet. Police have since ended their investigation, but the town, and Burger King corporate are still looking into the matter. Burger King claims measures will be put in place to ensure this never happens again.
Yolanda may run into doubters of her tale after an infamous 2005 story where another California woman falsely accused Wendy’s of placing a human finger in her chili. Said woman spent four years in prison for her scam, and recently went back to prison after being caught attempting another scam involving her children.
Similar razor blades were found in the Burger King kitchen which gives credibility to Yolanda’s story. Hopefully this incident will lead to increased precautionary measures at Burger King so that this won’t happen again. If those measures lead to me actually getting the food I ordered, even better.
