Child Served Marijuana In French Fries

In a potentially dangerous product incident, an Ohio child was served marijuana in her meal at a popular fast food restaurant. The Dayton mother is outraged and says her 4-year-old daughter ate marijuana in the French fries from a Wendy’s restaurant. The incident happened on Tuesday when the mother took her daughters to Wendy’s. The mother claimed the French fries looked charred, but when she looked closer, she realized there was marijuana in the food. She told her daughter to spit them out. The mother said she could see and smell the marijuana in the fries as well as paper.

The mother claimed when she called Wendy’s, the manager laughed at her and said Wendy’s did not serve her marijuana-laced fries and it was not the fault of employees. The woman called the police and they confirmed it was marijuana-laced fries. According to police, there are no surveillance cameras in Wendy’s food prep area. Police say it will be hard to prove anything but will continue an investigation into the incident. The Wendy’s Restaurant did provide a statement saying the company will conduct a thorough internal investigation and resolve the issue as soon as possible.
