A man has claimed to have bitten down on a ‘shark tooth’ type object, while eating Helga’s bread.

Matthew Fenn had been making his morning Vegemite toast on Monday when he discovered the mystery item.

The Melbourne father said he had been halfway through a slice when he felt a crunch, the Herald Sun reports.

Mr Fenn then pulled out the ‘sharp fang’ out of the bread, which appeared to be smaller than a five cent piece.

‘It looks like a little tooth. You can see jagged edges. It’s not human,’ he told News Corp.

Mr Fenn took to Helga’s Facebook page following the incident to make them aware, posting a photo of the strange object alongside his toast and the bread packet.

‘Wow, Helga…. talk about taking a bite from my morning breakfast Vegemite toast, only to bite what looks to be a shark sharp tooth within the bread!!?’ he wrote.

Mr Fenn, who has a nine-month-old daughter, added: ‘Lucky I didn’t let my baby have the toast first!’

Helga’s responded to the comment online, thanking him for bringing it to their attention and replying that they had ‘strict quality control measures’.

In a statement they later told the Herald Sun they had spoken to Mr Fenn and that until an analysis was conducted they would not ‘speculate about what the object is.’ 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Helga’s for comment.
