The Worst Thing I Ever Found in My Food

Just read the MLK topic, so this seems pretty shallow, but....a friend and I were eating dinner together tonight. She told me she was freaked out by opening a cereal (which shall remain nameless, but they are oaty and donut shaped) on NY Day, and pouring out a nice big bowl, and finding a.....nice big human fingernail clipping. After we both stopped groaning, I reflected that my all-time worst was in college. Frequently bought Banquet chicken pot pies [59 cents!] for dinner. Opened one and it had an artistic arrangement of mouse droppings frozen to its top crust. Someone was bored at the factory. What's your all-time worst "extra ingredient"?
