    Unhappy student finds a fingernail in food

    By David Brown on February 22, 2015

    A student in Plymouth who ordered a pizza from a local branch of Domino’s has revealed how she discovered a fingernail baked into her pizza’s crust. Sophie Manser studies at Plymouth University and had ordered a pizza from Domino’s to share with her housemates. The first couple of slices she ate were fine but the third slice was discovered to have a fingernail in it. She only discovered it as she bit down on the crust.

    She phoned the outlet she got the pizza from and spoke to the manager there. They remade the pizza for her and also gave her vouchers for two more free pizzas in the future. Domino’s has said it had been made aware of what had happened and was investigating what had occurred and how the incident had happened.

    Miss Manser went on to say she had not lost her taste for pizza but she was seriously considering whether or not to order any pizzas from that particular branch in the future. The nail was quite large and she was keen to point out it was not a fake one – instead it was yellowed.

    How common is it to find a fingernail in food?

    Thankfully this type of incident rarely occurs today. There are extensive health and safety measures that all restaurants and takeaways must adhere to. These measures are there to ensure events like this do not occur. Clearly there could potentially have been a health risk here and at any rate no one would want to find a fingernail or anything else that shouldn’t be there in their meal. This holds true regardless of what type of meal it is and where they have purchased it from to get hold of it.
