1) There is a pizza place 5 minutes from where I live so my dad goes there all the time. I have lost count of how many times I have found hair in the pizza and even in their subs. I once also found a rather long white piece of string cooked into the cheese.
2)Dead worm curled around a pistachio. I never had pistachios before and so I wanted to trie them. Bad first impression.
3)Can of corn...something black was attached to one of the corn pieces....now I never eat canned corn anymore
4)I was having a bowl of Apple Jacks cereal; I thought it tasted weird and off, chemical like but I just considered it a figment of my imagination type thing. Another day I had another bowl of Apple Jacks, still tasted off, and I started to get sick but I passed that off as a result of something else. Later on I had another bowl of the cereal, still tasted chemically weird, and after I ate about 5 spoons of the ceral I notice the culprit. There was an Apple Jack piece covere dwith this huge gob of some black substance.... it also smelled quite gross. I ended up taking that piece and I showed my mom a day later, she agreed that it smelled gross and she couldn't come up with a possible explanation of what it was either. Rest of the ceral got thrown away. I will never eat Apple Jacks again.

Oh, I almost forgot. 5)Every summer my dad would get corn for corn on the cob. Sometimes he gets it from the grocery store and sometimes from relatives or friends. I don't know where he got this corn but he ordered for me to husk them. the first cob I husked was fine. When I opened the second cob, I see a small white owrm or maggot, whatever it's called. I turn the cob over and I see 6 more of the creatures. I freak out and hurl the cob away from me. I look at the husk in the pale and notice mroe worms on that even. I gather up my courage and figure it was just that cob and I husk another cob, more of the dusgusting creatures. Now I refuse to husk corn ever again and I am still leary of eating corn on the cob.

On May 11, in Winnipeg, a couple found a baby rodent in their stir fry at a chinese restaurant in the food court. they found the first one, and later found another one. That is absolutely disguesting, and that restaurant should be permanently shut down.

I was visiting New York with my auntie once, and we went out to this nice little cafe for breakfast. I can't eat that early in the morning so I didn't eat anything, but my auntie's friend had gotten into the bad American habbit of ordering one of everything. As she was eating her scrambled eggs, she noticed a hair that looked like a pube (sorry to use that word but it did look like one). I pointed it out, and I HAD to start laughing. It was so gross, but she dismissed it. Now, she had moved onto her pancake, and there was another pube looking like hair. I was on the floor pissing myself, but the manager didn't charge us for the food lol.

I order from a Chinese place with my credit card and we ate it the next day when all of the sudden I see a fried fly in the fried rice. So I called very dissapointed and I spoke to the owner and he said just to cancel the payment. So I called and they tell me that it was too late that he had taken the money already so I called him back. The Chinese guy tells me that he doesn't really care. That this has happened before and that he doesn't care, but he didn't know that I was recording him, so I showed him and he was speechless he apologize and offered to pay me some extra cash. I said no cause I only wanted my money back and some apologize and when I made my way out I played what I had recoreded.

I go to McDonalds all the time and I order either double cheesburgers or Bigmacs anyways in more than one occasion I've actuall spit out little tiny white hard pieces, I also remember working there one time and a woman brinimg in a shard of white plastic from her burger, does anyone know what these are/is? And. People who tamper with other peoples food are a disgrace, how do they know that food isn't meant for a child or a sick child at that, I swear people can be so disgusting sometimes!

I just want to say that this crap is probably not a hoax unfortunately. When I was 12 years old we went to a local griner/pizza shop to eat. When I bit into my grinder I bit into something very hard and sharp. I pulled the bun apart and found a roughly 2 inch piece of a knife blade that had broken off into the bun of my grinder. It grossed me out so badly and it could have been very dangerous! We NEVER went back. Another time when I went to a Chinese buffet with my mom and daughter I pulled appart a chicken finger and found a long black hair intertwined in the batter. YUCK! Another time I bought some turkey burger to cook at home and made some burgers for my family for dinner. My daughter came to me with her mouth bleeding. She had bitten into a large sliver of glass in her burger. I inspected the left over turkey and found 3 more pieces of glass. I was horrified and all the company had to say was "how do we know you didnt plant it" yeah aholes I want my daughter to eat glass to earn a few bucks! WTF? I have also found a hair in the toppings of a pizza at a local restaraunt so it happens a lot more than anyone wants to admit.
