MAHOPAC, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A 15-year-old Westchester County boy got an unwelcome surprise this week while eating a piece of toast, according to a published report.

The Mahopac boy found a hypodermic needle while eating the toast, which was made from a loaf of Bimbo white bread, New York State police told The Journal News.
