The poultry sector is full of surprises, but the Forager was particularly shocked to find a plastic wishbone inserted into an envelope containing a press release.
Using dual X-ray imaging technology, the system can monitor up to 440 split filets per minute, detecting calcified bones as small as 2mm with 99% reliability, it claims.
And the plastic wishbone? Well, according to the press release, “breaking a wishbone while making a wish is said to make that wish come true”.
“But finding a wishbone with the Meyn BoneScan 440 ADX has nothing to do with wishful thinking – it is a guarantee,” it added. “Of course there is always something else to wish for, so we hope the attached will help in making them come true.”
The Forager was keen to give it a go. But the wishbone was more fragile than anticipated and snapped before his wish for a bucket could be made.
