Wendy's Finger, Part Deux

Postby Dr. Duran Duran » Mon May 01, 2006 4:00 pm

This time, it's for real. :-b

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - A diner found a piece of human flesh on his hamburger shortly after a restaurant worker accidentally cut his finger, and a spokeswoman said the company was "very, very sorry."

A kitchen manager at the TGI Friday's at College Mall injured himself Tuesday and no one immediately realized he had lost part of his finger while others rushed to help him, said Amy Freshwater, a spokeswoman for the chain.

"The manager didn't even know it happened until he got to the hospital," she said.

Another staff member served the plate to a customer, who immediately spotted the piece of flesh.

The manager was treated at Bloomington Hospital and lost only a small piece of his finger, according to Freshwater.

"We absolutely acknowledge the seriousness of this incident, and we are very, very sorry that this occurred," she said.

The restaurant has been in contact with the customer, Freshwater said.

The diner called police, but an officer told him that it was not a criminal matter, Detective Sgt. David Drake said.

Why would you call the police? I must be missing something.

You think someone would notice part of their finger missing :-P

Good lord...why don't people just go back to stuffing baby mice in beer bottles instead of cutting off their fingers, eh? ;-7

I'm surprised stuff like this doesn't happen more often. As many restaurants as we have and as many cooks/chefs as we have, I would expect 'accidents' to happen all the time.

Accidents happen all the time. But most of the time the stuff is never extreme enough to make news. Everyone wants to hear about a piece of finger on a burger which is rare and cool. But finding hair on food or finding out you were served moldy crap or seeing the chef spitting on/right next to the food - that kind of stuff happens so much nobody really cares.

That's another good point. I think nearly every teen has worked fastfood and I think nearly everybody has 'accidently' let something 'fall' into the food. Another good reason not to eat fastfood. :-P
