Possible baby's foot found in chicken dinner
Durham Herald-Sun |
"A Durham family may have gotten more than poultry in their chicken dinner Monday night. Authorities are investigating whether the questionable item was a baby's foot or just a strange-shaped piece of chicken, Durham police spokesman Lt. N.J. Blake said. 'Our ID tech looked at it and said it looked like a foot to him,' Blake said. The family, whose name was unavailable Monday night, bought a package of pre-cooked chicken Monday from the Lowes Foods at The Village shopping center... 'It's breaded, and it's already cooked,' police Sgt. Maurice Hayes said. 'It was in the shape of a foot, but anything could be the shape of a foot. I'm just trying to be optimistic here until the medical examiner can make his determination.' Blake said police also alerted the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Durham County Health Department, but officials couldn't say what brand of chicken was involved."
