Woolworths supermarket shopper’s ‘gross’ find in pack of chicken wings sparks heated debate on Facebook
A Woolworths supermarket customer has sparked a heated debate on social media after sharing a “gross” discovery in a popular chicken buy.
Posting on Facebook, the Woolies shopper said she was alarmed when she opened a RSPCA Approved Chicken Wings Bulk Pack and found that some of the chook pieces still had feathers attached.
Photos taken by the customer shows that several of the wings hadn’t been completely plucked, leaving her frustrated.

Other wings that the shopper purchased from the Woolworths deli also appear to have the same issue.
“Hey Woolworths, where do I buy the pre-plucked wings from?” she said in her Facebook post.
“I feel like I’m paying to do someone else’s job myself.”
She went on to agree that it was “gross” to have to “pluck them before eating”. She added: “I don’t even touch raw meat.”
The shopper’s complaint prompted a war of words on social media, with some agreeing with her stance.
“I don’t want it to look like an animal before I cook it otherwise I’d go into farming/butcher, that’s disgusting!” said one.
“Pluck the frickin’ chooks.”
Added another: “Pathetic really, makes me want to go vegan.”
Said one more: “That’s so gross.”
However others hit out at the shopper, saying she shouldn’t be surprised by the discovery.
“Oh wow, didn’t realise chickens have feathers,” said one.
Another wrote: “Gross? What’s gross about a chicken having feathers?”
Said a third: “Buys dead animal, surprised to find some feathers.”
Another Facebook user suggested she should “look at what you are buying rather than picking up packs blindly”.
“It’s not hard to do it yourself,” the user added. “Will take seconds to get rid of the few short pieces of feather that remains.”
However the shopper wasn’t taking the criticism lying down, insisting that the packs on display were “all the same” and that she didn’t feel it was her job to remove the feathers.
“Paying premium price for DIY plucking … umm no thanks!” she said.
A Woolworths spokesperson said the supermarket is investigating the shopper’s complaint.
“This pack doesn’t meet our usual standards of quality and we’re disappointed to see this customer’s experience,” the spokesperson told 7NEWS.com.au. “This appears to be an isolated customer report and we’ve passed it on to our supply partner to look into it further.”
If a Woolworths customer ever has concerns about the quality of a product, the supermarket encourages them to return it to the store for a full refund or replacement.
