A customer at a British Primark clothing store discovered something creepy inside a pair of socks last month.
According to Essex police, the shopper found the bone on December 10th, 2018. The bone “did not appear to be a result of recent trauma” police concluded, per Sky News.
“Detectives are continuing to investigate following the discovery of what is believed to be part of a human bone in a pair of Primark socks,” an Essex police spokesman said in a statement. “The bone does not appear to be a result of recent trauma and had no skin or other particles surrounding it.”
Primark said in a statement that it was “highly probable” the bone was put inside of the socks by a person but nevertheless, apologized to the customer. Sky News reported police were still investigating the incident and will need further testing to determine how old the bone is.
“Primark clearly takes this matter very seriously and has already carried out an investigation at our supplier’s factory where the socks were made,” a spokesman said in a statement. “No evidence of any kind exists to suggest that any incident has occurred in the factory, so it is highly probable that this object was placed in the socks by an individual for unknown reasons.”
