Woman Claims Tooth Found in Food

MCALLEN (KFXV) — It’s a story you’ll only see on FOX — a McAllen woman is worried after a gruesome discovery in her food.
A Valley woman, who prefers to be called “Lisa,” says she purchased food from Tortilleria Emmanuel, Monday morning but never expected the following to happen.
The owner of the local restaurant says this is the first time in more than 20 years that this type of incident happens.
Lisa said her 15-year-old daughter complained about mouth pain after biting into the tooth and after taking her to a dentist office, she says they found some bruising in her gums.
Officials from one local animal shelter say they took a look at the photos but, couldn’t quite decide if it belongs to an animal.
Fox News contacted several experts and they determined it was not a human tooth.

  1. Where is the proof that it was a dog tooth like she claimed? Where is the proof that it wasn’t a cow tooth? Really? People who buy the head know it’s a risk when eating it. A lot of restaurant owners buy the head, so that is a risk taken.

    • When you cook a head it isn’t always 100% that they can get every bone, or tooth out. Some places if you pay attention have warning signs. If you don’t like it cook your own food. It would save a lot of people the trouble. Smh

  2. I moved here from near Dallas years ago. Some of my friends would say aren’t you afraid of eating that? Speaking of street food in Progresso. I always said, Well it might have chased a car yesterday but it was good today. lol
