WILLITS, Calif. (AP) — Health officials plan to keep closer watch on a Burger King restaurant in Mendocino County where a customer reported getting a cheeseburger with a 2-inch-long razor blade in it.

Willits Police Chief Gerry Gonzalez says officers determined the one-edged razor blade resident Yolanda Orozco said she bit into on June 2 is the same kind employees use to clean to clear the restaurant's revolving flame broilers.

The officers also found several loose blades lying above the food preparation area and a counter.

Gonzalez told the Santa Rosa Press Democrat on Friday ( they think Orozco's burger was tainted accidentally. She was uninjured, and police do not plan to pursue fines or charges.

The Burger King Corp. issued a statement saying the restaurant's employees would receive additional food safety training.
