A straight pin reportedly was found in a loaf of bread bought last week at Kroger in Richmond Hill, according to a Richmond Hill Police Department report.
The incident was reported Friday by the president of Derst Baking Company, Paul Frankum. The bread was purchased Thursday afternoon by a customer who returned the loaf to Kroger “and complained of finding a straight pin embedded into the loaf of bread,” the report said.
Frankum told police “his company has already sent the loaf of bread to their investigation department to determine whether the bread left their factory with the pin inside, or if there is a possibility that someone added the pin through the packaging at Kroger after it was delivered,” according to the report.
“Mr. Frankum only wished to notify law enforcement at this time per his company’s protocol and advised that he did not currently need police action taken,” the report said.
