MIDLAND, Texas — A Texas woman found something less than appetizing in a burrito she bought from a convenience store.

Cynthia Corrigan bought a fried burrito for 86 cents at a Stripes convenience store in Midland.

“I just wanted to stop by and get one, I hadn’t had one in I don’t know how long. I couldn’t wait,” she said.

After a few bites, she said she got more than she bargained for. She said she first noticed a little blue speck that she though was a piece of foil.

But when she pulled it out, she said it turned out to be the finger of a latex glove.

“It was nauseating. I kind of yelled and my boss came and asked me what was wrong,” she said.

Corrigan said she immediately called the store and spoke with the manager who told her the burritos come from a vendor.

The Stripes store said the burrito was prepackaged by a third party vendor. They said what happened was unacceptable.

She said the manager told her to call the corporate offices and she did.

Corrigan said she filled out an incident report and she was refunded for the burrito.

The company said that although they believe this was an isolated incident, they’ve removed all related products and notified the vendor.
