    Default Customer finds employee's finger in frozen custard

    http://www.cnn.com/2005/US/05/02/cus....ap/index.html

    WILMINGTON, North Carolina (AP) -- A man who ordered a pint of frozen chocolate custard in a dessert shop got a nasty surprise inside -- a piece of severed finger lost by an employee in an accident.

    Unlike a recent incident at a Wendy's restaurant in California, no questions of truth have been raised about the finger served up to go at Kohl's Frozen Custard and found later at home by Clarence Stowers.

    Officials from the state departments of agriculture and labor went to the shop Monday, and the owner confirmed one of his employees lost part of a finger in an accident with a food-processing machine.

    Wilmington television station WWAY reported that Stowers found the finger in frozen custard he purchased Sunday night.

    Stowers, who did not immediately return calls Monday from The Associated Press, told the station: "I thought it was candy because they put candy in your ice cream ... to make it a treat. So I said, 'OK, well, I'll just put it in my mouth and get the ice cream off of it and see what it is.'"

    Stowers said he spit the object out, but still couldn't identify it. So he went to his kitchen, rinsed it off with water -- and "just started screaming."

    Stowers said he planned to contact a lawyer.

    Shop owner Craig Thomas said the employee who lost the finger had dropped a bucket while working with a machine that dispenses the custard. He tried to catch the bucket when the accident occurred.

    Thomas told WWAY that several employees tried to help the injured worker, and that a drive-thru window attendant apparently scooped custard from the bucket into a pint before being told what had happened.

    Joe Reardon of the Agriculture Department's food and drug division said state officials closed the shop while the food processing equipment involved in the accident was cleaned and sanitized.

    In March, a Las Vegas woman claimed she bit down on a 1 1/2 inch-long finger fragment while dining with her family at a Wendy's restaurant in San Jose, California.

    Investigators have since called her claim a hoax and charged her last month with attempted grand theft related to millions in dollars of financial losses Wendy's has suffered since news of her claim broke.


    Pppffttt I would've screamed to if the finger didn't have sprinkles on it

    That's some sick stuff.

    Fingers seem to be the favourite ingredient to side-dishes and desserts these days.

    This bothered me... 'OK, well, I'll just put it in my mouth and get the ice cream off of it and see what it is.'" Just the mental image is sick.

    this happened in my hometown!!! its pretty funny and nasty at the same time. the owner of the shop is actually a very popular local radio dj here. he had the nerve to go on tv and say that his first concern is for the employee! what about the person who was served body parts???? that should be a concern. should be interesting to see how this plays out. can't believe it is already national news!

    How the hell does the owner of the store go ahead and sell that custard, when he knew there was a finger in it? He is in deep do-do.

    Wouldn't you think that after the employee cut off his finger they would have looked for it? Anyway, I would have screamed my ass off if I had a finger in my mouth. Probably would have been something like in Ace Ventura after he finds out he kisses a man.

    Default My own little icky story

    How the hell does this guy lose a fiinger or part of a finger, and then they just keep selling ice cream? At the point of getting the finger severed wouldn't you just stop everything? I think the owner is in deep doo-doo also.

    Back in the late 80's or early 90's, I opened up a bottle of Coke and took a drink out of it, noticed an odd texture, and promptly spit it out. Upon further inspection, we discovered that the odd texture was chewing tobacco. Whether it had been in somebody's mouth before it was in the bottle could not be determined. What did I do? I got home and poured it down the sink.

    HELLO...EVERYONE CHILL OUT A SECOND!!! They were tending to the guy when SOMEONE ELSE DIPPED IN TO THE BUCKET!!! They didn't purposely serve it to the guy. The employee didn't know what was going on and scooped from the bucket that had the finger in it. It wasn't until later they realized the person scooped from the tainted bucket.

    Man, we're all jumping to conclusions about the owner here, when the story states that it wasn't until AFTER they got it all sorted out they realized the problem. There was nothing malicious about it. They didnt purposely serve the ice cream knowing it was contaminated.

    The guy that got the finger kinda freaks me out. I know that I don't go putting stuff in my mouth that doesn't look right thinking, "hey if I clean it off in my mouth I'll know what it is." Duh-er-er-er...the guy must have a few screws loose to do that.

    Either way it's gonna be a circus in court and one guy will lose out in reputation, especially considering his regular job. The other guy will lose out in reputation because he's a Homer that sticks strange, unknow objects in his mouth, even though it didn't look right.
