    SAN FRANCISCO - A diner at a Wendy’s fast food restaurant in San Jose, California, found a human finger in a bowl of chili prepared by the chain, local officials said.

    “This individual apparently did take a spoonful, did have a finger in their mouth and then, you know, spit it out and recognized it,” said Ben Gale, director of the department of environmental health for Santa Clara County. “Then they had some kind of emotional reaction and vomited.”

    Local officials launched an investigation after the incident on Tuesday night and the medical examiner determined on Wednesday that the object was a human finger.

    Officials are trying to determine if the finger came in the raw materials Wendy’s used to prepare the chili, Gale said.

    Wendy’s International Inc. corporate office did not immediately return a call for comment. Wendy’s is the third-largest hamburger chain.

    Chilli anyone?

    According to Ben Gale, director of environmental health for Santa Clara County, the finger did not come from any of the employees at the restaurant. "We asked everybody to show us they have 10 fingers and everything is OK there," he said. The found portion of the finger likely belonged to a woman because of its long and manicured fingernail, also found in the food.

    Where did the meat come from? The deep jungles of Africa???

    There was always something a bit strange about Wendy's chili - just nothing I could really put my finger in.

    Maybe it's Wendy's attempt to join the electronics age and go "digital".

    That usually happens when I'm being serious.
