"When I was 10 I bit into my burger and crunched down on something hard and then spat it out into my hand. It was a bolt – like, of nuts and bolts. I can still remember the look on the manager's face when we showed her. They gave me free ice cream for a year."

"I found shards of glass in my salad."

8. Submitted by Ashley Breiland (Facebook)
"I didn't quite finish a salad that I had ordered, so I took the leftovers home. My boyfriend started to eat it and stopped all the sudden and pulled a chunk of a razor out of his mouth. We took it back to the place, and they were good enough to admit that a piece of the chopper they use for lettuce broke off and matched the piece that he had bit in to. Thankfully he chewed carefully that day."

"I was eating out once, and we brought the food home - I was only about 6, and it was when they had newly introduced their popcorn chicken. I bit right into a staple – a big one that, like, holds carpeting in place. I am now a vegetarian."

"One time I found a fake nail in my fettuccine Alfredo pasta."
12. Submitted by Roni Johnson (Facebook)
"The last time my husband and I went for fast food, there was a pube sticking straight up out of my mashed potatoes. It was like it had been placed there, as opposed to it just maybe falling in somehow."
13. Submitted by Christy Casper (Facebook)
"About 15 years ago at a fast food place in Michigan, my grandma's sausage biscuit came with a wad of hair, as if someone emptied their hairbrush onto the food."

"When I was 7 I went to a fast food place with my grandma, minding my own business, not asking for any trouble. I ordered my chicken nuggets, bit in, and BAM, there was a TOOTH inside my freaking nugget! No one deserves that kind of agony and emotional scarring at such a tender, young age! I never ate a chicken nugget again."

"I found a wood chip in my taco once. That was pretty gross."
17. Submitted by DeAnna Hall (Facebook)
"When I was a little child, my family and I went to out for fast food. Something told me to open my burger before eating it, and when I did I found a wad of chewed up gum right smack in the middle of it."
18. Submitted by Julie Lynch (Facebook)
"My husband once bought a pie from a milk bar in Melbourne, and when he bit into it he saw that it was full of maggots."
