Man Claims He Found A Half-Smoked Joint In His Popeyes Sandwich

It doesn’t look like the Popeyes madness is dying down any time soon.

A New York City man named Jeremy Merdinger claims that his Popeyes chicken sandwich came with a special surprise and it wasn’t extra buns or chicken. Instead, his meal reportedly came with a half-smoked joint!

While speaking with The Post, Merdinger, 23, shared that he “ate the spicy [chicken] one first, and it was fine” after purchasing it on West 14th Street. He said as soon as he dug into the second one, he suddenly lost his appetite. “I was taking my last couple of bites from the second sandwich when it fell out and into my lap,” says Merdinger, adding that he could have choked on the used joint or gotten sick from ingesting it.

He went on to say,

“I was shocked at first. These are things you see on social media a couple of times a year, and for it to happen to me, I was shocked and disgusted.” He continued, “It was 100 percent marijuana. I saved the evidence. It’s in a plastic bag at home.”

So what does Popeyes have to say about this latest incident? Well, according to Merdinger, he reached out to the company, emailing them that night with his receipt and a picture of the roach. But apparently, they never answered him.

However, a spokesperson for Popeye’s tells The Post they are still investigating the claim.

“We have high standards for the quality of our ingredients and the preparation of our food. We take all feedback about our meals seriously and quickly take action to make sure all of our guests have a good experience.”

Merdinger said he did not want to make his complaint public but because the company did not get back to him, he decided to post.

“They were basically saying it happened outside of the restaurant, and there is nothing they can do,” says Merdinger, who is hoping to receive a refund and an apology. “They can at least admit they made a mistake. I would like for them to own up to it. I think it’s ridiculous and not professional,” The Post quotes.
