A Little Bit of Metal...In my FOOD

So...Who has ever been invited to a cookout and made the comment, "I'll bring the pasta salad!"?  To be honest, I have always been the girl that brings the chips and dip but lately I have been trying to branch out.  HA! 

This past weekend, my family and I were invited to a little get together.  I didn't get a chance to make anything and a quick stop at Martin's Supermarket deli sounded right up my alley.  My husband and kids waited in the car while I ran in.  I knew what I was going to order, so I asked for 2lbs of the Greek feta pasta and got out of Martins in record time.

When it was time to eat, I got the pasta out of the fridge and everyone helped themselves{right out of the container}.  When I sat down to eat everyone was going well UNTIL...

I took a bit of the pasta and felt a weird sensation of metal/aluminum meeting with a cavity that I had filled a while back.  I made some kind of a weird sound and then out of natural reaction bit down on the bite again.  That time I knew something was wrong.  I take the piece of pasta from my mouth and this is what I find....

Yep, that's right folks, that is a piece of metal{which later, after lab work was done, turns out to be part of a cooling coil that broke off in the fridge!}  

After calling Martins, they apologized and gave me my money back.  Oh, I guess I should mention that they also offered me another pasta, to which I declined.  DUH.  I forgot to mention that when I bit down the second time, it chipped my back molar filling so Martins Insurance company will also be taking care of that bill.  what a mess!

It may just be me but I feel as if I should get a years worth of FREE GROCERIES for the trouble this has caused, right?!

I am just thankful that it was me and not one of the kids! 

HAPPY WEEKEND and watch what you eat :)

  3. No way! That could have been WAY worse that what it was... You should get free groceries and then some!!!

  4. That is so terrible! I don't know if I could buy anything pre-made from there after experiencing that! Yikes. happy to hear that they are paying up.
