(KOB) Applebee's is investigating a customer's claim that she found a metal bolt in her hamburger.
Diana Almarez says the burger her sister ordered Sunday at an Applebee's in Albuquerque, New Mexico came with a metal bolt embedded in the meat.
"She bit into it and got a funny look on her face and we said what's wrong?" Almarez said. "As she kind of pulled the slider out of her mouth a little bit, there was this bolt."
A spokesman for Applebee's says they are grateful that the customer is safe.
They say they are reviewing the matter to determine the origin of the object and to insure that the food handling protocol was followed.
