Campbell’s Chicken and Stars soup is basically the best. Not only is it delicious, but this soup connotes motherhood and everything we represent when fixing something easy and palatable for our sick children. Chicken soup is our jam! Plus, the stars are adorable. But do you know what isn’t so adorable? Finding some freaky item in your soup that resembles some half-formed monster mutant chicken baby, which is exactly what happened to this mom in Colorado. From ABC News:
Montgomery says she poured the single-serving can of Campbell’s Chicken and Stars soup into a bowl to heat it up for her daughter Molly. She noticed the strange lump when she took the bowl out of the microwave.
“I opened it up, and there was this spec in there — I was like, ‘What is that?’ I looked a little bit closer and I was like, ‘Oh, that looks like a dead chicken.’”
And it does! It looks exactly like a dead monster baby chickie! Behold!
The best part about this is that the mom is reacting the same exact way I would. She is all EXCITED ABOUT IT.
“It’s like a train wreck — you can’t stop looking at,” Nicole Montgomery said. “I keep looking at it and thinking, ‘How does this happen?’ I have no idea.”
It’s freaky as hell! I would be showing it to everyone who came over.
Campbell’s Soup Company issued this statement: “Campbell Soup Company takes all claims of product contamination very seriously. Whenever we receive such a claim, it is fully investigated by our Quality Assurance team to determine its possible cause. We are in the process of evaluating the claim and have not yet received the exhibit from the consumer to conduct our investigation.”
A spokeswoman said a FedEx box is en route to Montgomery’s house for the exhibit.
I make this soup all the time for my own kids when they are sick. I think I have some in my pantry right now. I hope this is just some deformed noodle and not an actual monster mutant baby chicken because I love this soup.
I have found some weird things in my food over the years. I once found a piece of plastic in my yogurt and the company sent me some free coupons, whee. Once my husband I were eating out and he found a big metal staple in his salad and the restaurant owner told him this was normal. They didn’t even give us free dessert. I have to admit, I’m going to be following this one to see exactly what this thing is in this soup because I need to know these things. In the meantime, I’ll probably be giving all my canned soup the crook eye when I open it.
