A human tooth was found in a burger made by Bigard in Quimperlé,, sold by a supermarket in Angers, France.
Nathalie Dayiot discovered the tooth crown was in a burger prepared by a friend at his home in Angers. He bought it in trays guaranteed "100% muscle" in the Grand Carrefour Maine Angers. "I felt something hard, says the young woman. I spit. It was a tooth on a pivot."
Romuald Gross, who made the purchase, has every intention to complain to the Directorate General for Competition, Consumption and Fraud.
The hamburgers were manufactured at Bigard in Quimperlé. The consumer advocate, Mr. Julien Roulleau, said two of the four who had attended the lunch were victims of food poisoning recorded this morning by their doctor, following the consumption of steaks. "The remaining burgers were seized by the DGCCRF. Beyond the problem of the tooth, it is important to know if the lot was consumed," said Me Roulleau.
Carrefour's management promised an internal investigation and states that "the traceability of the product was traced back to the supplier concerned and to the manufacturing site."
