Well this is a weird one from Wisconsin.
A worker at a factory of the well-known national sausage brand Johnsonville has been charged with inserting "foreign objects" into links.
Former employee Jonathan Lane was charged in federal court last week for charges including tampering with a consumer product at the factory in Sheboygan Falls.
What he was allegedly putting into the sausages makes the story even weirder.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Eastern Wisconsin says that surveillance footage caught Lane inserting a cigarette paper and wire connector into the links while they were on the processing line.
This happened on two occasions, and both times Lane – for some reason – reported to his superiors that he'd found the tainted sausages on the food processing line.

Fortunately, none of the paper and wire-laced sausages made it out to the general population, but Lane is now facing charges that could lead to up to 10 years in prison.
"We commend Johnsonville Sausage ... for its security measures and quick action to prevent any harm to consumers," United States Attorney Matthew Krueger said.
