metal-detecting eating utensils

Forks and knives that warn of food containing metal bits

A co-worker told me a scary story: he was eating some "game" which a friend of his had shot. Some of the shotgun-shot was still in the meat. My co-worker bit down on a piece of shot and broke a tooth.

I think it would be nice if there were forks and knives which contained metal detectors. These might be thin magnetic "whiskers" which would quiver if waved over metal. A diner could casually wave his utensils over a piece of freshly-shot meat. If the detector detects something, then the diner could carefully slice that part, move the resulting pieces apart, and simultaneously detect which half still contained shot.

       Well, duh. Everyone who eats game knows there's a chance of biting on shot. Or should. Sheesh.
