Human Finger Found In Fast Food Chili - Page 2

post #31 of 51
I heard about it and thought it was a joke. My daughter loves Wendy's. We don't go there anymore because the only Wendy's near us is really dirty and the people who work there are real greasy looking. The manager was covered in these hairy moles, all over his hands & face, and well he was handling food & stuff with all those moles. So uh we now go to Subway.

I think poor Dave Thomas is going to roll in his grave over this one. Something happened to Wendy's after Dave passed away. I was curious too, like Cirque said, about the missing finger... I mean, if someone lost a finger in the meat processing plant, why not shut the plant down & look for the dang thing??? I guess because that would cost too much money, too much downtime, Wendy's would lose MONEY....

Well guess what... how many people who have heard this story (or been to a Wendy's recently, like myself) will be going for Wendy's chili or even a freaking Frosty anytime soon???

"food for thought" (with no fingers in it)

Ugh!! I used to work for Wendys...and you know...the finger would have to have been in either the seasoning pouch, the vegetables, or the cans of beans because the meat is meat that they cook especially for chili. Like you can only have the hamburger on the grill for a certain amount of time, and then you have to take it off, and it goes in a pan with water where is simmers, and then it is chopped up and put in chili. The joys of fast food...

I have to admit, that if I happened to have been the one who found it, or saw it, I'd almost guarantee that I wouldn't joke about it like I did in this thread!

I think the lady should now be a contestant on "Fear Factor".

She probably went home and told her family "I hate when someone puts their finger in my food when I'm trying to eat!"

If she sues, the judge may say that he can't come to a settlement cause he just can't seem to put a finger on it.

Wendy's can now advertise that their chilli is finger-lickin good.

I was waiting until I thought I could read the gory details of that story.... unfortunately, after those horrible pictures that that JERK posted on TCS earlier tonight, almost everything else pales in comparison. Yes, the story is horrible (that poor woman is going to need therapy forever!) but I think a lot of us who were on TCS tonight saw worse....

Police Search Home Of Woman Who Said She Found Finger In Food

POSTED: 5:02 am EDT April 8, 2005

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Investigators searched the Las Vegas home of a woman who claimed she scooped up a mouthful of finger along with her chili at a Wendy's restaurant last month.

City police, working with their counterparts in Las Vegas, served the warrant Wednesday as they investigated how a finger ended up in Anna Ayala's bowl of chili.

"We are looking into every aspect in this case," San Jose police spokeswoman Gina Tepoorten said. "We are talking to people she knows as well as the finder of the finger. ... We want to determine who this finger belongs to and how it ended up in a bowl of chili."

Police would not say what was listed in the warrant.

Ayala, 39, was at the San Jose restaurant March 22 when she claimed she scooped up the 11/2-long fingertip. She later filed a claim with the franchise owner, Fresno, Calif.-based JEM Management Corp.

"Just knowing that there was a human remain in my mouth ... it is disgusting. It is tearing me apart inside," Ayala told ABC's "Good Morning America" on March 28.

Wendy's spokesman Bob Bertini would not comment on the police investigation.

There was no answer at a home phone number listed for an Anna Ayala in Las Vegas. However, she told the San Jose Mercury News she would like to know what police were looking for in her home.

"I've been dragged through the mud," she said. "We've been treated like animals. I've been through too much."

On Thursday, Wendy's announced it would give a $50,000 reward to the first person providing verifiable information leading to the positive identification of the origin of the finger.

"It's very important to our company to find out the truth in this incident," said Tom Mueller, Wendy's president and chief operating officer.

Wendy's maintains the finger did not enter the food chain in its ingredients. All the employees at the San Jose store were found to have all their fingers, and no suppliers of Wendy's ingredients have reported any hand or finger injuries, the company said.

The Santa Clara County coroner's office, using a partial fingerprint to attempt to find a match in an electronic database, came up empty. DNA testing is still being conducted.
