CONCORD, N.C. —
Concord police are investigating after a customer discovered a razor blade inside a Disney children's sippy cup on the shelf at the Disney store at Concord Mills.
The manager found three more cups with blades inside.
Kristin Livingston, who's a Disney fan and takes her children to Disney World several times a year, shopped at the Disney store on Thursday. She says she goes there often.
"As a mom it terrifies me," she said. "I just bought some stuff from there last night so (I'm going to) make sure there's nothing in our stuff.”
Concord police said on Wednesday around 5:30 p.m. a customer found the blade sitting in the bottom of a sippy cup.
Police said they are trying to figure out if this was some kind of manufacturing plant mistake or if someone put the blades inside on purpose.
"Right here in Concord Mills. It's just scary," Karen Thomson said.
She shops at the store for her two young daughters and hopes Disney and police can get to the bottom of it soon.
"Hopefully it was something that happened at the packaging plant and wasn't something that happened right here in the store," she said.
Police said they are looking at surveillance video.
Disney would not reveal exactly which sippy cups were affected but said it appears this was an isolated incident.
