I found this thing floating in my orange juice this morning. I pulled it out and it appears to be some sort of protozoa or something. It's about a quarter the size of my pinky nail. Was not moving at all.

Should I be worried about this? Either way I will be notifying the store. Location is Okinawa, Japan.
