A father claims his 6-year-old son found a bullet at the bottom of a Hot Cheetos bag.

Bow Horn Weasel, of Elmo, Montana, told TMZ that his son found the round, covered in red coating, at the very bottom of the snack bag.

Bow says he reached out to the company who makes Hot Cheetos, Frito-Lay, on Facebook and via email.

Frito-Lay replied saying they are taking steps to investigate.

“This situation is highly unusual and troubling, and we have already taken steps to investigate and attempt to identify the root cause.  We appreciate Mr. Weasel bringing this to our attention and will continue to work with him to resolve this matter,” the company said in an email.

Weasel, claims he wasn’t looking for compensation — just that he wants Frito-Lay to make sure a mistake of this caliber doesn’t happen again.
