LITTLE ROCK, AR - A Little Rock man says he discovered an old nail inside a packet of rice he purchased from an area store.   Now, he's waiting for an answer from the manufacturer of the product.

Steven Leach tells Fox16 he discovered a nail while preparing Knorr Mexican Rice manufactured by Unilever. Leach says he immediately called the company who ordered a courier to pick up the product for testing.

Since that time, Leach says the company sent him coupons for some free products but hasn't been able to provide any other answers. He says recent calls to the company haven't been returned.

Leach says he isn't interested in filing a lawsuit. He says he simply wants the company to be held accountable.

"What I want is to push the company so that it'll reevaluate its safety and maintenance routines," said Leach via email. "Other people might not be so lucky if this happens to them."

Fox16 sent a message to Unilever media representatives who said they'd prepare a statement Tuesday.
