Some people are calling cap on the situation, but the man claims it happened. He’s reportedly not looking to get compensated but instead prevent this from happening in the future. Complex reports Frito-Lay reached out to the man and is sending him a testing kit.
He also claims to have already heard back from a Frito-Lay rep, and they sent a testing kit.
People online have mixed feelings about it:
I’m not buying it just yet. This allegation comes very closely after the Cinnamon Toast Shrimp Tail one. It would be very easy for someone to slip a bullet in the bottom of the bag and then say: Look what I found!!

Last month, The New York Times reported a man allegedly found a shrimp tail in his Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. The company issued a statement on Twitter and said,
“After further investigation with our team that closely examined the image, it appears to be an accumulation of the cinnamon sugar that sometimes can occur when ingredients aren’t thoroughly blended. We assure you that there’s no possibility of cross-contamination with shrimp.”
