Woman says pubic hair, eatery says string

RIVERVIEW, Fla., Sept. 20 (UPI) -- A Florida woman said she discovered a pubic hair baked into her tamale at a local Mexican restaurant.

Julie Mraz said she was celebrating her 50th birthday at Luna's Mexican Restaurant in Riverview when she bit into her tamale and felt a hair in her mouth, WTSP-TV, St. Petersburg, Fla., reported Thursday.

"Took a tissue, spit it out, and I don't mean to be graphic but it was not a hair that comes from the head," Mraz said. "I went and got sick in the bathroom."

The general manager of the restaurant said the item was not a human hair, but rather a string from a piece of corn used to make the dish.

Mraz complained to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, which sent a state inspector Sept. 4. The inspector documented 6 critical violations, including the temperature of a refrigeration unit. The inspector said a repairman working on the unit discovered a group of about 60 roaches.

"We've been working with a company for about a year. We've been treating all that, but other than that, everything is OK," the manager said.
