South African-based fast food chain Debonairs on Monday admitted fault after a customer found a metal plate lodged inside her pizza.
The franchise said the incident happened at their outlet in Bloemfontein, on Nelson Mandela Drive.
“A customer placed a delivery order for a Triple Decker with a crammed crust ... When the customer opened the pizza, she identified a pizza screen left inside the pizza between the top and the bottom layer,” said spokesperson Gail Sham.
She said the pizza screen was a flat perforated disk used to cook pizzas on as they go through the oven.
