Tokyo: McDonald's Corp officials in Japan have bowed deeply to apologise for a human tooth and plastic pieces found in the burger chain's food.
They told reporters Wednesday the objects were found by customers, including a child whose mouth was injured by a piece of plastic in an ice cream sundae in December. The fragment had fallen into the dispenser while being assembled.
In another case, a customer who bought a Big Mac set in August last year found a tooth in the fries. McDonald's said none of its employees at the outlet or its suppliers had lost a tooth, and there were no signs the tooth had been fried.
It was still investigating how the tooth and plastic, in two other separate cases, entered its food.
Japan’s favorite flower, called sakura, used to reach their peak bloom in April, just as the country celebrates the start of its new school and business year.
