Adding to the horror, the sharp razor on the scraper was actually extended at the time - meaning the potential for serious injury was high.
The McDonald’s in question immediately apologised and offered the family another meal, however the concerned dad contacted local police wanting a full investigation.
Columbus Police Chief Dennis Weiner confirmed it was a cleaning tool from the restaurant that they believed was accidentally knocked into the McHappy Meal. And while CCTV footage has failed to shed light on the incident, Chief Weiner said it was an isolated incident.
‘I don't think anyone had ill intent,’ he says. ‘I think it was a fluke.’
Dion Conn, owner of the McDonald's in question, told Channel 3000, ‘The safety and security of our customers is a top priority. We are working with local law enforcement to investigate this claim.’
