HEY!! FINGER CUSTARD WASN'T ON THE MENU
RALEIGH, N.C.-- This time, no one is doubting the claim: A customer really did find part of a finger in a pint of a frozen chocolate custard purchased at a shop in North Carolina.

The piece of index finger, which an employee had severed at the first knuckle, was found Sunday by Clarence Stowers in a pint of frozen dessert he purchased from Kohl's Frozen Custard in the coastal town of Wilmington.

Kohl's owner, Craig Thomas, said employee Brandon Fizer, 23, tried to catch a bucket of custard he had dropped and accidentally put his finger into a machine that beats the custard mix. As shop workers tried to help Fizer, a drive through window attendant unknowingly scooped frozen custard from the bucket containing the finger and served it to Stowers.

The state is investigating whether Kohl's was in compliance with workplace safety rules.

Stowers did not return repeated calls Tuesday. He reportedly has hired a lawyer.

The North Carolina discovery came not long after Anna Ayala made headlines a fingertip in a bowl of chili at a Wendy's restaurant in San Jose, Calif.

For Kohl's, it was the scond time in less than a year that a worker lost a finger on the same frozen custard machine. The worker, William Franklin, was found by investigastors to have been negligent in the July 2004 incident.

Franklin, however, contends he was only in his thrid day on the job and had been given no safety training. He is suing Kohl's, which he said fired him.

Franklin said his severed fingers did'nt end up in any food. Doctors were not able to attach it.
