PHOENIX – A woman Tweeted a picture and a message to her local Safeway after she spotted a severed chicken foot in a package of chicken breasts.
NewsBreaker reports that Lindsey J. using the Twitter handle @liiindseyyy412, tweeted the following:
“Hey, @Safeway, does this look like ‘chicken breast’ to you? I’m vomiting.”
Lindsey said that Safeway responded almost immediately, asking in which store it was found. She also told an employee where the package was located within that store.
When prompted for a response, Safeway, Director of Public Affairs, Nancy Keane, sent the following statement to a local reporter:
We appreciate that our customer notified us about an object in a package of chicken breasts. We have confirmed with the supplier that the object was a chicken foot, which is a product that the supplier processes and sells to other retailers. While the part does not pose a health risk, we are investigating how it became packaged in with our product. The package was removed from sale.
Safeway also sent an email to Lindsey to let her know they were looking into the photo and would respond further after “a thorough investigation.”
The label on the package of chicken appropriately reads “Eating Right.”
