Update: Several Sandwiches Prepared After Employee Cut Finger



A report from the County Health Department shows three to four sandwiches might have been served before an employee told her managers she sliced her finger.

The employee cut herself on a meat slicer and left for a couple of minutes to get a towel to wrap around her hand before telling anyone what happened.

Original Story:

On Friday a 14-year-old boy says he was eating a store-bought sandwich and bit in to something that tasted like rubber. It turns out it was a piece of a finger an employee had cut off while using a meat slicer.

The boy, Ryan Hart, told our partners at Jackson Citizen Patriot it was "just nasty." 

Shortly after the boy found the piece of finger in his junior roast beef sandwich from Arby's on North West Avenue in Jackson the family went to the hospital and talked to police.

The restaurant team reportedly did stop serving while employees cleaned and sanitized, but Arby's never closed.

A corporate spokesperson says they are still looking in to what exactly happened and they are very sorry for this quote "isolated and unfortunate incident."

The county health department cleared Arby's to stay open and serve customers.
