A man in Montana is alleging that his 6-year-old son found a bullet inside a bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. *Cue the “Ah, s**t, here we go again” meme*
According to reports from TMZ, a man by the name of Bow Horn Weasel went public with these claims on Tuesday, April 6. The Montana native reportedly purchased a bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Puffs on Saturday. The next day, his six-year-old son allegedly opened the container of puffs and found a bullet at the bottom of the bag.
The report includes a screenshot of a DM exchange between Horn Weasel and the official Frito-Lay page on Facebook.
While this claim comes suspiciously close to Cinnamon Toast Crunch gate, the Montana native is adamant that this is a completely serious claim. He goes on to tell TMZ that he already heard back from a Frito-Lay representative and is being sent a testing kit for the bullet.
According to the report, Mr. Bow Horn Weasel isn’t looking to be financially compensated, but is simply hoping to prevent this alleged incident from being repeated for other customers in the future.
While this isn’t as disgusting as finding shrimp tails in your cereal, there’s obviously something very upsetting about finding a bullet in…anything you’re eating. Hopefully, this issue gets resolved quickly.
