Frito Lay - Hair Embedded IN Chip!

I purchased chips on 7/21/2014 and I found small hairs embedded in a Ruffles Cheddar and Sour Cream chip.I purchased and opened the bag on the same day and it did not expire until 9/23/2014.

I contacted the company, we'll see what they say. Disgusting! The worst part is I had eaten half the bag before I pulled this chip out and noticed the small hairs embedded in the side of the chip.

I will never purchase anything from them again.I don't really care for coupons or free chips, I want them to own up to this mistake.

They're not hairs, it's part of the potato. It's tiny fibrous roots that were growing off the side of the potato. If you notice they're at a dark spot on the potato, that's one of the "eyes" where the roots come from. This one was just plucked from the ground with some tiny ones hanging on. No biggie.

Same thing happened to me, it's actually multiple little hairs that look just like that one, and it was the deep ridged ones aswell, though i figure they're not actual hairs but rather some kind of part of the potato that was incorrectly removed, or something along those lines. Unless there's a particularly strange fellow working on these chips who enjoys feeding people his hairs...
