What was supposed to be a comforting breakfast turned out to be a health scare for a couple in Singapore.

In a Facebook post on Oct. 31,a Facebook user revealed that they had ordered the Twister & Porridge Buddy Meal from Punggol Oasis's KFC outlet via Foodpanda.

The meal consists of a breakfast burger and porridge.

The couple, who shared the porridge, had already eaten most of it when they discovered something in their food.

Screw in porridge

As her husband was about to feed her a spoonful of porridge, she noticed something sharp on her spoon.

According to her, that "thing" on her spoon happened to be the sharp end of a half-inch screw:

The customer expressed that she was "disgusted and disappointed" and wants KFC to take "full responsibility".

In a reply to her post, KFC Singapore relayed their "deepest apologies" and emphasised that the fast food eatery takes for safety and hygiene matters "very seriously".

They have also followed up with the couple on the matter and will be conducting further investigations.
