Cairns mum finds metal screw in bread roll

A Cairns mother has been left with a cracked tooth and bloody mouth after finding a metal screw in a bread roll from a local supermarket.

Skye-April Cullen bought a six pack of bread rolls from Coles Smithfield on Tuesday night.

After returning home and going to eat a roll for dinner, she made the grim discovery.

In a message to the supermarket giant, she detailed her shock and disgust in the find.

"Hi Coles here I am bloody disgusted and have cut my mouth open because of pure negligence from your Smithfield store," she wrote.

"I brought a 6 pack of your buns for my dinner (Tuesday) night take about 6 bites then feel my tooth crack and taste blood.

"I rush to pull the contents out of my mouth. Firstly want to point out I have a baby who is just starting to eat who could have just as easily ate this.

"I had a screw in my mouth, Coles a metal screw. I have pictures and I'm mortified I bet there's still buns on the shelf.

"I don't know what is going to fix this, hey. Massive contamination ur (sic) lucky my daughter didn't choke to death."
