A horrified Australian traveller discovered a suspected human tooth in a meal on a Singapore Airlines flight, prompting the carrier yesterday to apologise and launch an investigation.
Bradley Button was eating rice on the flight on Tuesday when he heard a crunch and spat out what appeared to be a molar.
"For the rest of the flight I was not well, just the idea of having someone else's body part in my food is not nice," he told the Australian Associated Press.
He said a flight attendant was "adamant" that she needed to take the object away for testing and that it was a small rock.
"It was without a shadow of a doubt a tooth," he added. After the discovery, Button said he was given a voucher to use on the airline's duty-free products.
