Ontario woman who choked on screw in Tim Hortons iced coffee says she was only offered free lunch

From the article:

"She said it had come from the back of the ice machine and that there’s a screw missing."

*****

Tim Hortons said the "concerning situation" was determined to be an isolated incident.



Uhhhhh

How did the screw migrate from the BACK of the ice machine, into the cup of iced coffee?

Picture of offending object:

If it was from the outside/back of the machine, that would seem impossible.

If it was from the inside.....I'd like to know about the design brilliance involved; and how they would prevent such a thing from happening again.

That looks like something from the outside of the machine holding the sides on.

It's probably from a panel that is frequently opened and closed for cleaning. Maybe the staff didn't properly tighten the screw and it fell off, or they had set it aside and it fell into the drink. Just speculating.
