The Finger in Wendy’s Chili Hoax

When a customer at a Wendy's restaurant in California claimed to have found a human finger in her bowl of chili, her allegation received huge amounts of media attention and cost Wendy's over $1 million a day in lost sales. The company offered a $100,000 reward for any information about how the finger got into the chili. But a police investigation eventually determined that the finger hadn't actually been cooked in the chili. The customer subsequently pleaded guilty to conspiring to file a false claim.
