SOUTH CAROLINA – All that glitter is not goldfish. Sometimes it’s a diamond ring.
A South Carolina girl made quite the discovery while eating a snack.
Peyton Postol has been enjoying her summer vacation.
A little interruption to the fun came as she got ready for a doctor’s appointment – when her mom Stephanie Postol handed her a snack.
“I opened up and I asked my mom, is there supposed to be a ring in here?,” Peyton asked.
“I took one look and then I had to double take and realized it was a real ring,” said Peyton.
She took a close look at a small silver band with what looked like little diamonds in it.
“I hate that someone has lost their wedding band,” she said.
The company said they’d never heard of jewelry being found in their products, mainly because no jewelry of any kind is allowed in their bakeries.
Safety inspection forms ask employees to remove all jewelry, nail polish, and other accessories.
“We love goldfish,” Peyton said.
“We always have them in our house, but now the though of them not using gloves makes me not want to eat them anymore,” Peyton added.
Postal says she’s been in touch with the goldfish maker, Pepperidge Farms.
She also plans on sending the ring back to the company to see if they can determine where it came from.
The company says it takes complaints like this very seriously.
