Ok so yesterday several of you sent in the Facebook pic of the Pick n Pay boerewors with a whole chicken foot inside. I never posted it coz the packacking was opened and i questioned how a whole chicken foot could make it through the meat mincer. It still did the rounds however and Pick n Pay investigated the matter and released a statement saying they suspect foul play. Ok i can’t find actual proof that they said those exact words, but it would have been glorious if they did.
Anyways…they did say that “we don’t believe that the product left our store in the way shown in the photograph.”
Here’s the original pic in case you never saw it.
It was reported that Pick n Pay apologised and refunded the person who posted the image, but they later released the following statement.
“We investigated this immediately and we can confirm that no chicken, including chicken feet, is used in making boerewors. Any meat going into boerewors would have gone through a mincer. Based on our investigations we do not believe that the product left our store in the way shown in the photograph.” [The Citizen]
Now you know.
