A Michigan mom wants answers after she says her daughter took a bite of a Wendy's burger and got a mouthful of glass.

The 3-year-old girl was at the franchise in Southgate when her mother says she heard a loud crunch when her daughter took a bite.

As the mother worked to pull the food from the girl's mouth, she said she found her fingers had blood and glass on them.
