This makes no sense. I mean, at least with hiding a razor blade in inside a Snickers bar, like to get trick-or-treaters or something, you've got the possibility of the person chomping down without ever knowing the razor blade is in it. But who the heck just chomps down on a stick of butter? I mean, unless you're at a county fair or something and it's deep fried, I guess that would make sense, but that doesn't seem like it was the situation here. In the vast majority of cases, people are just gonna slice into the butter with a knife, and they'll discover the razor blade long before any chomping takes place. Come on, think, people. Think.

That oughtta be a frictionless, smooth shave.

I read that as 'razor blades inside butler' at first


/that would be...different

"Like razor-butter," Mr. Crystal quipped.

That would explain what the stick of butter was used for.

/Try KY next time.

The more likely explanation is someone put the razor blade in the butter and then called the news channel for attention.

What would be the point?

I suspect this is bullshiat as well.

Hey, prelubricated razor blades!

Most likely it's some sort of tampering. Almost any manufacturing facility (and IIRC all milk plants) will run a HACCP program with metal detectors and documented checks.

I used to work in a commercial bakery and I had several of these "call channel 11" investigations in a 2 year period, every time we were able to come up with all the evidence necessary to get the complainant to either back down or confess.

That will keep Puck out of your peanut butter.
 
2014-02-01 08:34:57 PM  
police are investigating the incidents as possible food tampering

As opposed to what, naturally occurring razor blades in butter?
 
2014-02-01 08:34:57 PM  

I'm glad that they included a helpful photo of butter in TFA so I know what it looks like.

Now... if they would include a picture of a razor blade so we know what we're up against here.

Given the history of "razor blades in stuff", I'm going with "put there by the person making the claim."

Sounds like Christie is settling another score

"Hey, you got razor blades in my peanut butter!"

"Well, you got peanut butter on my razor blades!"
 
2014-02-01 08:43:14 PM  
Was the mayor of the the town the supermarket is in a democrat?  Where was Christie at the time?  Stuffing his face?
 
2014-02-01 08:45:21 PM  
Who exactly is this a threat to? People who mainline butter right down their cavernous maws?

If such a person does actually exist, razor blades in their butter is probably the least of their health concerns.

And I just saw they captioned it "BUTTER".  I was lost for a while but now I'm good.

This is why you should bring your groceries to the police station so that they can x-ray them before eating them.

Police stations don't do that, BUT, they will arrest you for bringing in contraband...

ftfa:  The supermarket chain said in a statement: "Best Market would like to assure its customers that after this thorough review, all items for sale on our shelves are believed to be unaltered."

In other words "we looked at a couple of packages, didn't see anything weird, whatever".
 
2014-02-01 08:55:44 PM  
Oddly enough the person that found the razor blades works at a razor blade factory. Funny thing coincidences.

How about 20 bucks a blade?

The main suggestion that this might not be bullshiat is that two different customers made the same complaint about the same product (prior to the media putting out the call for copycats, apparently).

/if they know each other, then back to square one

So we know it couldn't cut cold butter...

Even if they don't know each other, it may be a "Strangers on a Train" circumstance.

if I could get razor blades for $4 a pound I'd be rich!!!

Yes but that would be a very strange train.

I like extra razor blades on my popcorn when I go to the movies. Helps mask the pain of being alone.

Wow, I've never seen a stick of butter before.  What's it made out of?
