Do you mean actual debug build items or just showhiddenobjects debug? Because I don’t have a problem with the latter. Since all fruit is considered debug as are some of the new furniture, I’m guessing it would be tricky to limit what you get from it. Idk I thought it was fun finding an eel and a UFO fruit!

Found debug object when Dumpster Diving

★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Rarely (0% - 9%)
What is your current game version number? 1.80.69.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Expansions: Cottage Living Snowy Escape Eco Lifestyle Discover University Island Living Get Famous Seasons Cats & Dogs City Living Get Together Get to Work Game Packs: Dream Home Decorator Realm of Magic Strangerville Jungle Adventure Parenthood Vampires Dine Out Spa Day Outdoor Retreat Stuff Packs: Paranormal Tiny Living Moschino Laundry Day Toddler Fitness Bowling Night Vintage Glamour Backyard Kids Room Romantic Garden Movie Hangout Cool Kitchen Perfect Patio Luxury Party
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I found it randomly by dumpster diving. It's not reliable by any means, probably just as rare, if not more so, than finding something like a money tree seed.
What happens when the bug occurs? Sim goes into dumpster, and gets the message: [Sim name] found in the dumpster, but it may be in questionable condition. Check your Household inventory. The message doesn't give the object a name, but when you look in your inventory, it looks like a yellow and green box in the shape of a chair.
What do you expect to see? Anything but a debug item.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

When I log in with the object in my sim's inventory I get an error about there being an object that is part of an expansion pack that I don't own. It doesn't remove the debug object, but I wasn't getting this message before I found the object either.

So this is not intended behaviour? I get all kinds of gardening produce from dumpster diving and I think it makes sense.. If the sims has the recycler thingy trait, they'll obviously get more rare stuff like possibly even the money tree fruit.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
