ELSTORF, GERMANY - JANUARY 07: Chicken sit in coop on a organic accredited poultry farm on January 7, 2011 in Elstorf, Germany. Organic farmers across Germany are likely to benefit from the current dioxin scandal that is forcing at least 4,000 non-organic poultry, hog and other farms nationwide to suspend deliveries for the time being. Authorities suspect the north German firm Harles and Jentsch of supplying up to 3,000 tonnes of dioxin-tainted fatty proteins to 25 animal feeds producers. Though so far the majority of farms affected are in the state of Lower Saxony, the scope of possible contamination is spreading and now includes 11 German states. on January 7, 2011 in Elstorf, Germany.

A Phoenix woman's horror at seeing a chicken foot within a package of chicken breasts at her local Safeway has created an online buzz after she alerted the media and wrote she was "vomiting."

A Twitter user identified only as Lindsey posted a picture of a package that appears to show contain a chicken foot. She has since protected her tweets from public view but NewsBreaker posted a screen shot of the original message.

"Hey, @Safeway, does this look like "chicken breast" to you? I'm vomiting," she wrote.

A screen shot posted by Gawker shows other tweets to a news organization. "I think this is something you should be alerted about," says one message to 12News. Breaking news: those chicken breasts wrapped in plastic on the grocery store shelf were once attached to feet. And a head too. Many comments on Twitter were less than sympathetic to this shopper's traumatic reminder that chickens have many body parts.

However, Safeway responded to say they would address the situation.

@liiindseyyy412 we are so sorry! Which location was this at?!#yikes #heretohelp — Safeway (@Safeway) July 24, 2013

@liiindseyyy412 thanks for the feedback. We will contact the store immediately! — Safeway (@Safeway) July 24, 2013

According to NewsBreaker, Lindsey returned to the store later and asked to speak to a manager because the package was still on the shelf.

Keep that chicken out of your chicken, Safeway.
