WILLITS, Calif. (AP) - Health officials plan to keep closer watch on a Burger King restaurant in Mendocino County where a customer reported getting a cheeseburger with a 2-inch-long razor blade in it.

Willits Police Chief Gerry Gonzalez says officers determined the one-edged razor blade resident Yolanda Orozco said she bit into on June 2 is the same kind employees use to clean to clear the restaurant's revolving flame broilers.

The officers also found several loose blades lying above the food preparation area and a counter.

Gonzalez told the Santa Rosa Press Democrat on Friday they think Orozco's burger was tainted accidentally. She was uninjured, and police do not plan to pursue fines or charges.

The Burger King Corp. issued a statement saying the restaurant's employees would receive additional food safety training.
