BRICK – One Brick Township woman took to social media to share what she almost ate for a late morning Thursday breakfast.

Krystle Platzer shared the post publicly at 11:56 a.m. Thursday on her Facebook page, and made another post a couple hours later. She took two dozen pictures of what appears to be a breakfast sandwich she said she purchased from the Dunkin Donuts on Route 88 in Lakewood. The sandwich, her photos show, had bugs and worms in it.

“I legit started puking got this at DD on 88 {Lakewood]. [I] took bite saw {and I saw] a worm crawling out. [I} started puking it out then opened up those are all worms and bugs now I gave G the other one opened it thank God there wasn’t any on the little piece left he had. [I’m] sick to my stomach[.] What if my baby ate this one. I don’t know if the rest of his had these bugs. Just think of a live worm falling out of your mouth to make you check and find this,” she wrote.

According to reports, she purchased two sandwiches. Her toddler son gobbled his up before she could confirm whether his was insect-free or not. So far, Platzer said, he has not gotten sick.

The franchisee of the Dunkin Donuts on Route 88 reportedly did not offer Platzer a refund but did offer her son a drink or Munchkins. She declined.

Jersey Shore Online reached out to Dunkin Donuts press office for comment.

“At Dunkin’, food safety is a top priority and nothing is more important to us than our franchisees operating clean and safe restaurants. We are aware of the guest complaint regarding the Dunkin’ location at 1500 Ocean Avenue in Lakewood, NJ. We take matters such as this very seriously,” Olivia White, a Dunkin’ press officer, said via email. “Upon learning of the complaint, we immediately dispatched a certified Operations Manager from Dunkin’ to the store to confirm all food safety and quality standards are being followed. The franchisee who owns and operates the store has confirmed he has met with the guest to resolve the matter and apologize for the poor experience.”
