One family from Texas, US, bought a cake from an El Rancho Market store and found scissors inside the dessert!
Nothing says “We wish you a happy birthday” like a pair of scissors in your birthday cake!
Yoly Nava, a woman residing in Arlington, Texas, US, wanted to throw a birthday party for her mom. The woman asked her brother to go to a local store and buy a cake for the birthday gal, so the guy went to an El Rancho Market store and bought a cake for $59.99. All seemed good up until the party started and the guest of honor had to dive her face in the cake as part of an old Latino tradition the family wanted to honor. Fortunately, Yoly saw that there was a pair of scissors sticking out of the cake’s bottom layers just before her mom was about to stick her face in the dessert and probably end up injured.
The woman warned her mom that something sharp like a blade was sticking out of there and it turned out that the birthday cake contained scissors. The family was shocked by this discovery, since the dessert was store-bought and was supposed to be perfectly safe. Yoly called the store and demanded an explanation. The store gave the family another cake, which also contained a nasty surprise – a human hair sticking out of it.
Yoly claims that she now doesn’t want any more compensations from El Rancho Market, but she does want to make sure that the store officials have learned their lesson and that they will train their staff properly. The store’s officials claim that they are currently investigating the scissor case and that regardless of what has gone wrong, they have a strict policy regarding incidents, according to which they always aim to set things straight with their customers.
