Arby’s Sandwich Incident; Its Skin Deep


Not again? This time from Tipp City, OH where a man claims he bit into an Arby’s sandwich and found a piece of flesh about three-fourths of an inch long. This time it looks like the story is legitimate as compared to the recent Wendy’s finger incident.

Scheiding said he realized something wasn’t right when he bit into the sandwich on June 18 and found a piece of flesh about three-fourths of an inch long.

“It looked like I was seeing fingerprints on it,” he said. “I got sick and went to the bathroom.”

Miami County (search) health investigators talked to the restaurant manager, who had a bandage on his right thumb and wore a latex glove, according to a health district report. The manager said he sliced skin from the thumb while shredding lettuce, and sanitized the area but didn’t throw away the bin of lettuce, the report said. Scheiding’s sandwich contained lettuce.

“Why wasn’t the food searched, and why wasn’t it thrown away?” said Scheiding’s lawyer, Hank Hyde.

      Not to be a stickler, but if I ordered a sandwich at Arby’s and it didn’t contain flesh (another word for meat), I’d take it back and complain.

      What that feller found in his sandwich was skin, as your headline indicates. The reporter was trying to be overly clinical about what was found, I imagine. Guess those old-media types don’t have enough editors to slap ‘em upside the head for misusing words.

      Good catch because the article even references “skin” from the managers finger.

      Oh come on McGehee, us poor slob blogs don’t know anything about editing our own blogs. Those old media types constantly rip us as not being “real media” as we don’t have an editing process to scrutinize our work.

      From the looks of it neither do they.
