Woman Bites Down On Metal Screw In Her Chipotle Burrito Bowl
Guac is extra at Chipotle, but they'll throw in a metal screw for free.That's what one woman got when she brought home her burrito bowl from the Chipotle at The Grove. Eating her usual chicken bowl with brown rice, she was not only unhappy because she was eating brown rice instead of white rice, but also because she bit down hard on something that "felt like a rock," she told TMZ.
Although the store told the woman there was nothing they could do, a call to their corporate office netted her 20 free meals. Score! "She has been taken care of," a Chipotle spokesperson told TMZ. "All is well."
