Cig butt found in Rice Shop food!
Hopefully this disgusting story of “mystery objects found in food” doesn’t gross you out too much!
But one Hoboken411 reader will probably never go to the Rice Shop again after this incident:
Cigarette butt found in Rice Shop delivery
“Thought your readers would like to know, and a question…
We ordered from Rice Shop this evening. The Beef w/ vegetables came with an added bonus. A smoked cigarette Butt (no tobacco, just the blackened, smokey/beefy flavored filter).
Not only is this just gross, but it’s a health hazard, as a smoked cigarette butt is a good place to get tuberculosis.
Any recourse other than just receving a refund? getting my $29 back doesn’t really offset worrying about what the kitchen staff at rice shop is carrying around with them.”
Later – he added:
“We got a refund, though the worse part is that they called back twice to try and convince me it was the stem of a mushroom.
I told them both times that mushrooms do not taste like a smoked cigarette, because my wife actually did chew on it for a moment before realizing thatit was “used cigarette filter’ was the taste she was experiencing.”
