Foreign Object

A foreign object is defined as any object or material that is not a component of or related to the food in question. Examples of foreign objects in food include hair, plastic, glass, insects, stones, nails or any other substance not included in the ingredient list on the product. Although severe injury from the consumption of a food item containing a foreign object is rare, it may cause cuts, bleeding, infection, choking, broken teeth or other injuries.
