Ewww! Gross!

Update: April 23, 2005

SAN JOSE, California (CNN) -- Police said Friday that a woman lied about finding a human finger in a bowl of chili last month at a Wendy's restaurant here.
They said Anna Ayala, 39, was arrested Thursday night at her home in Las Vegas, Nevada, on a charge of attempted grand theft in connection with the episode.
Ayala was also charged with grand theft in connection with an unrelated incident uncovered during the course of the Wendy's investigation. She is accused of bilking a woman out of $11,000 in a real estate transaction.
San Jose Police Chief Rob Davis said Ayala will be extradited to California.

Wendy's Customer Bites Into Cooked Finger While Eating Chili
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- A diner's meal at a San Jose Wendy's restaurant brings a whole new meaning to the term "finger food."
Health authorities in California report a woman bit into a human finger while eating a bowl of chili at a Wendy's on Tuesday night. She immediately spit out the finger and warned others to stop eating. Then she got sick.
They said the fingertip was about an inch and a-half long, and contained part of a manicured nail.
The county medical examiner said the human finger was cooked but not decomposed. Authorities temporarily closed the Wendy's and seized all the ingredients at the restaurant.
Officials counted all the fingers of the Wendy's workers -- and say none had a missing digit. Authorities think the finger must have come from a Wendy's supplier.
Investigators have seized all of the ingredients at the restaurant, and they're trying to trace them back to the manufacturer. They think the finger got into the chili at an earlier stage. They also said it was cooked at a high-enough temperature to kill any viruses.
Wendy's says it's cooperating in the investigation.

Meat processing facilities are known to pose significant threats to worker safety. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, meat processing is the most dangerous job in the nation; in fact, the rate of injury and illness among slaughterhouse workers is approximately three times higher than the injury rate in the average U.S. factory. Every year, 29 out of every 100 meat processing workers sustains a work-related injury or illness that requires treatment beyond first aid. Given the pressure placed on slaughterhouse supervisors to report low injury-rates and the numerous past scandals involving injury-log falsification at slaughterhouses, it is likely that many additional injuries are never recorded
