Bakery worker Anke Friedman, 24, was injected with marmalade by a machine that fills doughnuts with marmalade in a freak accident in Sonthofen, Germany. She is currently recovering.
“The jam was bulging under her skin and it was causing her a lot of pain,” said a paramedic team spokesman.
“At hospital they had to open up the wound, clean out the jam and then stitch her hand back up. She will be fine once the swelling goes down,” they added.
A spokesman for the bakery said: “There is a security bar which the woman was supposed to lift before she put her hand inside which would have turned off the system.
“But to get it done quickly she had bypassed that bar and was injected with marmalade jam.”
