A McDonald's customer from Michigan had an unpleasant experience during a trip to the fast food giant in February 2012.

Susan Delph Of Dexter, Michigan filed a lawsuit last week claiming that a "foreign object" contained in her breakfast burrito caused her "constant pain, discomfort, disability, emotional distress, mental anguish and the inability to perform many activities which she was able to perform prior to the accident," according to court documents obtained by the Ann Arbor News.

"(She) bit down on a hard, foreign object causing severe injury to her mouth and jaw," the lawsuit continued.

According to a story in the Ann Arbor News, the lawsuit lists "counts of negligence, breach of warranty and violation of consumer and food laws".

However, the lawsuit does not offer specific details as to what this foreign object was.  Delph is being representented by Neil A. David from Farmington Hills.

Delph went to the McDonald's located 1535 S. Main Street in Chelsea on Feb. 26, 2012, and ordered a breakfast burrito.

Unfortunately, it was not the first time a customer has claimed to find foreign objects in the McDonald's food.

In late April, a pregnant woman from Iowa and her boyfriend told authorities they found what looks to be marijuana in their McDonald's burgers, according to the Huffington Post.

Brittany Songer said she went to a McDonald's restaurant in Ottumwa, Iowa, with her fiancé, Cory Long, and her 2-year-old son.
