A mum has claimed she found a makeshift weapon inside her Amazon delivery.

The US woman took to a Facebook group dedicated to strange finds to share a photo of the added extra alongside the Como Tomo baby bottles she had bought.

"I just got baby bottles with a free shank attached from Amazon," she said.

Some users commenting on her post said it appeared to be part of a broken CD.

Others referenced the widely reported poor working conditions in Amazon warehouses, with the company currently engaged in a long-standing dispute with unions.

"Dystopian nightmare warehouse conditions may explain the shank," one wrote.

Many speculated the package had been processed in a prison or sweatshop.
