A Singaporean woman has claimed that she found a human tooth in her fish and chips while dining with a friend at a local cafe.
The woman, name not disclosed, bought fish and chips from a coffee shop on Hougang Avenue 5 for SGD 6.90 (GBP 3.70), according to local media.
After allegedly finding a human tooth in her meal, she took to Facebook on 6th July to share images.
She has since deleted the post as it is believed she accepted the shop’s compensation and apology.
Before removing the post, she told local media that she noticed something strange on her second bite of the meal.
She spat out the hard object and her friend pointed out that it looked like a discoloured human tooth.
The woman admitted that she was horrified she had someone else’s tooth in her mouth for a moment while dining out.
She took the fish and chips back to the counter and was offered another meal in exchange, however she insisted on a refund.
She said that staff members, who were reportedly shocked by the find, gladly reimbursed her.
Meanwhile, the shop owner contacted the client afterwards to apologise and said he would carry out an internal investigation into the incident.
He said the tooth did not belong to the two staff members on-duty at the time and is speaking to his food suppliers to try to find out more information.
The shop owner has also not ruled out the possibility of foul play and is considering sending the tooth for DNA tests to find out who or what it belonged to.
