On 7 October 2016, Green Bay Packers tight end Jared Cook tweeted an unsettling photograph of a fried chicken head that he said he found in his Buffalo Wild Wings order:

The company responded to Cook’s complaint on Twitter, saying, “This is something we take very seriously, and we are looking into it. We’re getting in touch with you right now to learn more.”

Cook said he has never been grossed out by a food order before.

“I’ve never had anything that could tastes me back in my food, ever,” Cook told ESPN, adding he would never go back to a Buffalo Wild Wings. He also told the sports station he took the opportunity to taunt his vegetarian wife, by Face Timing her and pretending the chicken was talking to her.

We sent a Twitter message to the restaurant chain but have not heard back yet. However, Cook’s doesn’t seem to be the only complaint the restaurant has received in recent days regarding inedible chicken parts being left in meals. Betty Andrews sent the company a notice on their Facebook page, along with a picture, claiming that a piece of chicken she was served still had feathers attached.
