A Chicago police officer was served hair and dirt after ordering at a Wendy’s early Monday, police said.
The on-duty officer ordered food at a drive-thru around 1:30 a.m. in the 1600 block of West Division Street, Chicago police said.
As she began to eat, she found the hair and dirt in her food, police said. The officer entered the restaurant and spoke to an employee who dismissed her concerns, police said.
In a statement, a Wendy's spokesperson said the company has been in contact with the police department and plans to investigate.
