Adam Young was tucking into his Fray Bentos pie when he bit down – on a tooth.
The stunned dad-of-one said: "I felt something really hard in my mouth. It was like crunching a stone. But when I spat it out onto my plate I could see it was a tooth."
He added: "The first thing I did was to double-check my own teeth. But they were all intact. I've looked on the internet and I think it might be from a young cow. I certainly didn't expect to find anything like that in my pie."
Adam, 36, from Clyde Street, Sheerness, immediately emailed the food firm which has asked him to send it the offending molar for testing.
Adam added: "I wanted to warn them in case they needed to take all their other tins off the shelves. I don't want anyone else finding a tooth. They might choke on it and die."
The minced beef and onion pie was bought in Adam's nearby corner shop.
Adam, who has been unable to work since being hit by a car in Sittingbourne 22 years ago when he was left with head injuries, had sat down to eat his tea on Wednesday night (July 6) when he crunched on the chomper.
The part-time weatherman, who runs the Swale Weather website is now hoping Fray Bentos scientists will get to the root of the problem.
He admitted: "I was thinking of putting it under my pillow to see what the tooth fairy might bring me. But from now on, I'm sticking with salads."
Fray Bentos is made by Baxters Food Group which boasts: "Local sourcing has always been a key ingredient in our recipe for success."
In April it had to recall Fray Bentos Just Chicken pies because they may have contained small pieces of plastic.
Back in 2012 a Scottish woman reported finding a tooth in a Fray Bentos minced meat pie.
A spokeswoman for Fray Bentos said: "Quality is extremely important to us and we take all customer concerns seriously. We can confirm that we have been in contact with Mr Young and have requested that some details along with the foreign object be sent to us to ensure we can investigate this matter thoroughly.”
