Found something rather large in my food!

I’ve read all of the stories about people finding stuff in their food, but in my 37 years I’ve never found anything or at least that I noticed until the other day.

I like food, but many times I don’t like to cook so I’ll grab a frozen dinner to make something quick. Bertolli has this line of frozen food called Oven Bake Meals, and they’re not too bad.. They’re not fine dining or anything but they’re better then some other frozen dinners out there.  I’ve tried a couple others they’ve got and they weren’t bad, so I grabbed another one.

So I came home from the store with my groceries thinking I was going to be enjoying some Roasted Chicken Cannelloni, it sounded good until I opened the bag and found this rather large sharp and deadly looking piece of plastic mixed in with my food.

Not one to miss a photo op, and considering nothing like this has ever happen to me I grabbed my camera and and ruler to show the size of this thing..

it looks to be a piece of a mold maybe that was used to make the Cannelloni.. or maybe not.DSCF9896 DSCF9899 DSCF9902 DSCF9904 DSCF9901

Not sure what it is, but there’s a chance it would have melted in my food as I cooked it had I not noticed it, and even it it didn’t melt I think I might have noticed it in my mouth!! But I’m sure biting down on it would have hurt quite a bit…

I have to ask how does something this large get missed? Well I guess I know how, it’s probably just an assembly line that’s not even monitored so it just fell in and the bag was sealed and shipped off..

I did email Bertolli and tell them about a few days ago, I also asked if they wanted it back! Haven’t got a response yet though…  not that I expect to really.

Does it put me off from eating frozen dinner or the Bertolli brand? No, not really… it happens, and I’m just surprised it’s never happened to me before this..

    I think we got the other piece of this plastic in our Bertolli shrimp scampi meal. It is a little smaller, same color, and very sharp. I found it after I had microwaved the meal and was dishing it out.

    Found a similar corner piece in mine – same color and about the same size! First time i thought i had burnt a portion while cooking it so threw it out, second time this piece was distinct and larger. has someone with a rather difficult experience dating back from Sept 2010. hmmm?
