Man... that headline could be taken in a nasty way...
A closer look...
When she complained, obviously the owner was all over it ready to defend what had been found... which he said were not TEETH... but instead "beef lips." The "plant manager".. or person in charge of the beef I guess... said this:
"We admit cow lips are not the most attractive food item and can resemble teeth. Unfortunately, it made its way into this customer's dish. Our products standards are high. We meticulously scan our product prior to packaging.
In this instance, an edible-but-unexpected part of the cow made its way into the packaging of our 100 percent Cheek Meat Barbacoa. We've spoken to the restaurant owner about his concerns. And we have reinforced our standards of excellence with our plant managers."
WOOF. It's all too gross for me.
I was gonna post more pics of beef lips here but I'll pass. Click here to see.
