  • A Woolworths customer has found a plastic wrapped blade in her toothpaste box
  • The woman purchased the White Glo toothpaste from Glenelg, in Adelaide
  • Upon unboxing the tube she noticed another object fall out of the packaging 


A Woolworths customer has been left stunned after discovering a blade in inside her packet of toothpaste.

The woman purchased the White Glo toothpaste product from the supermarket in Glenelg, Adelaide. 

When she opened the box she found the unexpected item.

A rusty blade wrapped with what appears to be sticky tape fell out.

‘I wanted to let you know what I came across while I was unpacking a product of yours I purchased at the Glenelg store,’ she wrote on Woolworth’s Facebook page according to Yahoo News.

‘Tonight I emptied the contents of the box, which contains the standard tube of toothpaste, and another item I hadn’t noticed prior.’

The original post on Wednesday evening has since been deleted, with an image showing the razor blade. 

‘A sharp weapon was packed within the box which looks frankly dangerous,’ the customer wrote.

The woman went on to explain that she has a ’21-year-old profoundly intellectually disabled brother’ and if he found the blade he could have seriously injured himself or his support workers.

‘What if a child was asked by their parents to take the toothpaste out of the packet to help out?’ the woman asked. 

Luckily, the woman found the item without injuring herself while opening the package.

A spokesperson for Woolworths told Daily Mail Australia they were unaware of any similar reports.
