(NEWSER) – Things you don't expect to hear from McDonald's: There is no indication that a human tooth found in an order of fries was fried. That from the fast-food giant's Japan unit, which has been digging into the discovery of the tooth, which turned up in an order placed in August in Osaka.
McDonald’s Holdings Co. (Japan) Ltd. further says it doesn't yet know how it ended up there: Workers at the plant that produces the fries don face masks, and none of the employees of the location in question reported an absent tooth. As the AP puts it, McDonald's Japan officials "bowed deeply" today in apology over the tooth, as well as plastic pieces that were recently found in its food.
