CANTON, Ohio — The severed tip of a restaurant worker's thumb was found in a customer's salad.
Stark County Health Commissioner Bill Franks said an employee at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers in the Canton suburb Jackson Township was chopping lettuce
at about 7 p.m. Monday when he cut off a part of his left thumb, including part of the fingernail.
Employees at the restaurant about 70 miles south of Cleveland searched for the tip of his finger, but could not find it. The area was cleaned and
sanitized, but the lettuce was placed in the cooler. The lettuce was then used for salads the next day.
"It wound up being served at lunch time Tuesday to a 22-year-old woman," Franks said.
She had eaten most of her salad when she put the human tissue in her mouth, Franks said.
She thought it was a piece of gristle, a health department report said. She then alerted a manager.
