Wendy's Chilli--Finger Lickin' Good?

March 29, 2005

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- A woman said she bit into a partial finger served in a bowl of chili at a Wendy's restaurant, leading authorities to a fingerprint database Thursday to determine who lost the digit.

What's happened to our food distribution system when human appendages end up in the final product? And the authorities response? Did they look into the meat supply chain, or factory conditions, or safety standards? No. They shut the restaurant down "for a few hours" and "seized the chilli." And then they reassured the woman who found the finger that, hey, no problem....the chilli was cooked.
