The Cherokee County Emergency Management Agency warns citizens that while free chicken tenders may sound amazing, the boxes of tenders have been on the side of the road for more than 24 hours following an 18-wheeler accident and are unsafe for human consumption.

For citizens undeterred by the food safety warning, the agency further notes that “it’s a crime to impede the flow of traffic” and that anyone caught attempting to eat or take those tenders to-go could be charged with a crime.

Plus the comment section on the Facebook post has a few gems.

Details including the brand of chicken tenders, their seasonings, and whether they were previously frozen are not available at this time.
