Police officer bites into Arby's sandwich, finds a bolt

Much of our food goes through multiple stages of processing and preparation, and, from time to time, rogue materials end up getting mixed in.

A police sergeant in Birmingham, Alabama is seemingly now all too familiar with such troubles.

On June 1, Sgt. Patrick Cosby bit into a sandwich he'd bought at an Arby's drive-thu, notes WVTM. Cosby says that he quickly realized there was a 1-inch bolt nestled between the layers of roast beef.

He told AL.com, "I don't know how you make a sandwich with a bolt that large in it and not be intentional. I can't wrap my head around that."

Christopher Fuller, spokesperson for the Arby's Restaurant Group, has since offered assurances that the inclusion was entirely accidental. Fuller said in a statement, "After reviewing video footage from our kitchen speaking with our team members, we are confident no one was targeted in this instance."

He also noted, "...we are currently working with the guest to resolve the matter."

As far as foreign objects found in various foods go, a bolt is certainly disturbing, but not nearly as disgusting as some other reported undesirable inclusions.

Incidents over the years include the discovery of a toad in a bag of frozen vegetables and a mouse stuck to the bottom of a loaf of bread.
