Fingertip Found in Wendy's Chili at Calif. Franchise

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.
The incident Tuesday night at a San Jose, Calif., Wendy's restaurant left the unidentified customer ill and distraught, said Joy Alexiou, a spokeswoman for the Santa Clara County Health Department.
Employees at the Wendy's were checked and the fingertip didn't come from any of them, officials said, adding that the well-cooked finger may have come from a food processing plant that supplies the company.
Denny Lynch, a spokesman for Wendy's International Inc., based in Dublin, Ohio, said there have been no reports to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration of injuries at any supplier of chili ingredients to Wendy's.
"All of our chili suppliers report no accidents," he said.
Health officials said the fingertip was approximately 1 1/2 inches long. They believe it belongs to a woman because of the long, manicured nail.
Investigators seized the remaining chili and closed the restaurant for a few hours.
Alexiou said the woman, who asked officials not to identify her, is at minimal risk of contracting illnesses from the finger because the chili was cooked.

Maybe - some lady flipped a bird too many!
Let's hope they can 'finger' (or 'nail') the perp

So what had to have happened here is that someone lost a finger at the packing house or processing plant, they looked for the missing finger after the accident and figured what the hell it's all ground up, nobody will ever know. It's not like you wouldn't know about it when you cut a finger off and in a packing house I would think they would have looked until they found it.
I used to work for a meat company and we had a guy that actually got an arm yanked off inside a big machine that cut up large slabs of meat into small chili/stew meat sized pieces. The USDA inspector was right there to tag every container of meat in the immediate area, which was sent to a rendering plant for disposal. Obviously someone didn't report this accident to the inspector's.

Don't be fooled by body parts. For quite a long time I thought Betty was built upside down.
After all, her nose ran and her feet smelled.
Boy, this new kevlar is light-weight...(hope it works)
