Report: Man, 96, Finds Rat Tail in Birthday Cake
COMMACK, N.Y. — A 96-year-old man took one bite of his birthday cake and knew something was amiss.
It was his favorite German apple ring cake from his favorite store, but it didn’t taste right.
According to WABC, the Commack, NY family said the cake appeared to have a stripe of black mold in it, but when they looked closer, it seemed to be a rat’s tail.
The store that sold the cake told WABC the product was removed from shelves and there were no known safety or rodent issues in the bakery.
An attorney representing the family thinks someone tampered with the cake.
