Weiner and beans, anyone?
An Ohio woman bought a package of what she thought was smoked turkey tails at a supermarket – but thought she got the shaft when she noticed a decidedly phallic-shaped piece of meat in her beans, the Akron Beacon Journal reported.
“I’m calling Save A Lot, this ain’t right,” Akron resident Lamia Singfield said on Facebook Live.
“I know what this is,” she added, referring to a male member.
“It’s got the folds,” Singfield told her Facebook fans. “Upon further investigation, there’s a hole at the tip.”
When she checked her store receipt, it indicated she had bought turkey tails, but a photo of the label said it was actually “smoked pork tails.”
But still fearing that she was cooking male genitalia, the worried woman called the cops about the mystery meat.
“I called the police because I examined it and it is what it is,” Singfield said in a second Facebook Live video.
“The police came and they examined it, and it is, in fact, a penis. They are calling the medical examiner out here right now, and the coroner, because somebody is missing they stuff. Save A Lot has got some explaining to do,” she said.
Fortunately, an investigator from the Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office said the meat was indeed pork and not an errant penis – adding that the piece of meat contained a bone, suggesting it was likely a pig tail.
In a statement to the Beacon Journal, Save A Lot said it had not been contacted by the customer.
“At Save A Lot we have a long-held commitment to the highest standards in quality control and work in partnership with our vendors to ensure those standards are upheld,” the statement said.
“Issues of quality receive the utmost priority and we take this matter very seriously. We can confirm that we have had no previous quality issues with this item and we have not been contacted by the customer in question or the local authorities regarding this incident. We will take the appropriate action at that time,” it added.
A still-suspicious Singfield said she has hired an attorney to look into the matter.
Regardless of what it was, she said, the meat was mislabeled and wasn’t a turkey tail.
“It looks nothing like the other meat in the package,” she said.
