Patrick Cosby, an Alabama Police Sergeant, bit into an Arby’s Classic Roast Beef Sandwich over the course of his shift only to find something unpleasant inside his sandwich.
Dressed in full uniform, Crosby found a 1-inch bolt inside the meat of his lunch.
He said that “I don’t know how you make a sandwich with a bolt that large in it and not be intentional.”
It was clear that the workers at the Arby’s knew that he was an officer. He was working late in Birmingham, so he decided to stop by a drive-thru fast-food restaurant.
The bolt was attributed to a malfunctioning meat cutter, according to the retail manager. The senior vice president of the company, Christopher Fuller, even went out of his way to call Cosby and reassure him that “no one was targeted in this instance.
Cosby is not buying it. He went on to say ” I just know that 100 percent of the people who have seen the picture, many who have been in the restaurant business for 30 years, say there’s no way it’s not intentional.”
“I’m playing this out in my head,” he said. “I wondered if it was intentionally done.”Cosby said he heard from Arby’s officials on Saturday. A regional manager told him the bolt came a malfunctioning meat cutter. AL.com reported employees slice and weigh the meat while making each sandwich. The vice president of the company also called Cosby and told him the same thing. Christopher Fuller, a senior vice president with Arby’s, told the paper that he was sure “no one was targeted in this instance.” “We have a long-standing tradition of supporting our men and women in uniform, and we are currently working with the guest to resolve the matter,” Fuller said. The Jefferson County Health Department visited the Arby’s on Monday and told Cosby the bolt came from a faulty cutter and that the restaurant had experienced previous problems in the past. “They’re alleging it’s not intentional, but I don’t see how that makes it on to a sandwich,” Cosby said.
