The officer got the sandwich Thursday from Bon Appetit in Belle Harbor, Queens. He says when he took a bite, he pulled a full size razor blade out of his mouth.
Investigators ruled it an accident after reviewing store surveillance video, and DNA evidence from the blade.
The officer was treated for a small cut.
Investigators added that agencies have been notified to follow up with the business and make sure this kind of accident never happens again.
