Alabama warns drivers not to stop and eat chicken tenders spilled on highway
In what could be a first for the nation, an Alabama Emergency Management Agency issued a public service warning this week telling people not to eat hundreds of chicken tenders spilled across a state highway.
It happened Sunday in Cherokee County, and the sheriff’s office went so far as threatening to charge any sticky-fingered people caught in the act.
“The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office is asking that no one try to stop to get the chicken tenders that were spilled from the 18-wheeler accident last night,” said a Facebook post.
“You’re creating a traffic hazard! It’s a crime to impede the flow of traffic. Those cases have been on the ground for over 24 hours and are unsafe to consume.”
