    That is just too vile for words, just as I'm about to go and have a late lunch too. :eek:

    Still, brings a new meaning to the phrase 'finger-food'.

    Makes me wonder how many times things like this have happened, but didnt get caught. If it was a smaller bit of finger, she may have eaten it and never noticed! :eek:

    As anyone who's worked in food retail will tell you, this is a risk you run anytime you eat something processed...

    Probably the only real meat in the food.

    Next time she will probably go for the vegetarian option.

    A quick Photoshop rendering (bored at work). This story also reminds me of the McNugget Chicken Head from a few years ago. I remember when I was in high-school a local Hormel plant had to recall cans of chili becaue one of it's workers lost an arm in a machine and product "accidentally" shipped to stores. Nasty.

    It is bad enough that the crap is horrible with the stuff in it that you read about, bacteria, ecoli, etc. But actually seeing a hair is disgusting or a band-aid. So I guess getting an appendage is the next level up - if you don't know the source don't eat it - yuck. I wonder if Wendy's has a deal with a mortuary or cremetarium...far fetched, but...who knows;)

    stuff like this makes me want to grow all of my own food and be a vegan


    almost.....but definatly makes me happy that i dont eat fast food all that often anymore, and i think things will pretty much be staying that way for quite a long time

    now i guess i can wait a while before lunch, i dont want to get sick

    This just goes to show how invaluable a finger is. No one's even looking for it.

    Or, perhaps it's just that the rest of the body hasn't been served yet...

    I don't really find this funny, but very sad. Her reaction was certainly very appropriate. Probably there will be a lawsuit in the works. Wonder if there was enough of the finger to do a fingerprint or a DNA test to find the owner?

    I hope the employee went home and noticed that s/he accidentally lost a finger at work.

    I wonder if the whole story will ever come out. If it wasn't just an accident at the factory, I hope bodies aren't disposed of like this on a regular basis.

    I can see it now. She runs up to the manager: "One of your employees just gave me the finger!"

    But seriously, wouldn't it be interesting if they found out it was part of a whole body, an imformant disposed of by the mob maybe. And they have been disposing of people in that way for the last 20 years! ewww...

    please, please stop giveing us images!!! even if we have to create them ourselves ;)

    seriously i could hear of stuff like this happening.....anyone ever read the book Toxin by Robin Cook? some of this stuff reminds me of that.....

    distrubing nonetheless and there is a part of me that wants to know where the finger came from!!! was it just laziness/sloppiness or part of something bigger?

    Scary for me because this is just a bit south of me. And yesterday I ate some food from Wendy's not knowing of this. I really like their food and all, but after this it may be a while before I eat there again :( :eek:
