Woman claims to find finger in eatery's chili
By Sandra Gonzales
A woman eating chili Tuesday at a Wendy's restaurant in San Jose may have gotten an extra ingredient she didn't order -- a human finger.
She was at the Wendy's at 1405 Monterey Highway around 7:30 p.m. when she saw what appeared to be a finger in her chili, according to San Jose police officer Enrique Garcia.
Devina Cordero, 20, was with her boyfriend at the fast food restaurant when she said the woman, who has not been identified, began gasping and ran up to her saying: ``Don't eat it! Look, there's a human finger in our chili.''
Cordero said the object appeared cooked and seemed to have a long fingernail at the end. All three people soon became sick.
``We went up to the counter and they told us it was a vegetable,'' Cordero said, ``The people from Wendy's were poking it with a spoon.''
Garcia said the Santa Clara County Health Department is taking over the investigation.
Bill Irving, director of operations for Wendy's, said he could not comment.
Asked whether they were still selling chili, Irving said they had run out of it that evening but planned to continue selling it today.
