A boy found a finger in his Arby's sandwich ordered from a Michigan drive-thru window, according to MSNBC.
Ryan Hart, 14, had ordered a junior roast beef sandwich from the fast food chain and had nearly finished eating it when he bit into something tough to chew that tasted like rubber.
He spit the unknown item out and discovered it was the remnants of an employee's severed finger.

The employee had cut her hand on a slicer and left her station without immediately telling anyone.
Hart said, "I was about to puke. ... It was just nasty."
John Gray, a spokesman for Atlanta-based Arby's, released a statement Wednesday apologizing for the "unfortunate incident."
Gray confirmed that workers at the Michigan location shut down food production as soon as they found out what happened and thoroughly cleaned and sanitized the restaurant.
