Foreign Objects in Food

If You Find a Foreign Object in Your Food

No one wants to find a foreign object in their food. But if you do, here’s what to do.

Take Quick Action:

  • Keep the original container or packaging.
  • Wrap the uneaten portion of food and any foreign object.
  • File a formal report with the store or restaurant.
  • Obtain the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of any witnesses.
  • Contact us at 800-280-0070.
  • You may also file a formal complaint with the USDA, with the store or the products’ manufacturer.

If You Have Already Ingested the Foreign Object:

  • Contact your doctor as soon as possible.
  • Be aware that foreign objects can have viruses and bacteria that could make you sick.
  • Note any blood in your mouth or bowels, as broken pieces can have sharp parts that can cut your mouth, throat and bowels.
