It was a digit in the chili, not going there again.

I dont believe it happened because anybody working that cuts their finger off would probably be screaming bloody murder and want to get medical help.Ive seen people cut them selves real bad with knives and on the food slicer and its pretty stressful.I just dont think that the person who lost their finger would just not say anything.

No reports have been filed with OSHA. An undocumented worker might not say anything for fear of losing their job.

Wendy's is the only fast food place that I like and until the mystery of the finger-in-the-chili is solved I will NOT be eating there.

I agree! I've seen people come in the ER with a scratch that didn't even bleed or need a Band-Aid and they wanted a 30-day "expenses paid" medical leave excuse from the ER physician - and got really abusive when they didn't get one.

Could a mouse, or a rat, run through the dredging flour, the buttermilk-egg wash, and roll around in the breading mix ... crawl into the cooler and nestle among the chicken parts for warmth and comfort totally undetected? Since the chicke is removed from the cooler, dipped and stuck into the pressure cooker right before it is cooked .. I'm sure someone would have noticed something crawling around! IMHO - it's another urban myth.

Before I believe this story ... I want to see the fingerprint evidence and a finger-count investigation of all the workers at the suppliers!

On the bright side ... Wendy's can now advertise serving "authentic" finger foods - until the case is proven to be what it is, BOGUS.
