Poughkeepsie Man Finds Unwanted Surprise in his Chalupa
A Hudson Valley man is claiming his Chalupa purchased in Poughkeepsie included something a little extra.
On Saturday Jason Jerad visited the Taco Bell on Main Street in Poughkeepsie. After placing his order at the drive thru, the 31-year-old Hudson Valley man left with his meal, not realizing that his order contained something extra.
After opening up his Chalupa, Jason says he was surprised to find a piece of paper crumpled up inside. He photographed the item and Tweeted it to the Taco Bell corporation to find out what was going on.
Jason believes the item is some sort of time stamp that unknowingly fell into his meat. If so, this wouldn't be the first time it's happened. A Reddit post from two years ago shows a similar piece of paper stuck inside a Taco Bell burrito. A few commenters who claim to be fast food employees say that it's a "day dot," which is a time-stamp that shows when items are prepared. The day dots are used to make sure expired items don't make their way out to the customers.
I guess it's good to know Taco Bell is keeping things fresh, but getting one of those time-stamps in your Chalupa is probably not the best way to advertise a restaurant's commitment to quality.
Jason has still not received a response from Taco Bell.
