Disgusting Behavior: Lay’s Potato Chips use FedEx Field dirt to grow potatoes, completely gross out America
The fine folks at Lays Potato Chips have lost their minds. That’s the only explanation for their decision to use the sawdust and nightmares that compose FedEx Field to grow their potatoes and partner with the Washington Football Team on limited edition chips.
The many issues FedEx Field has had over the years have been well documented.
Just this past month FedEx nearly killed Jalen Hurts., with stands collapsing onto the field. Aside from structural issues, the field itself is infamous for causing horrific injuries to players. All of this makes it increasingly baffling that a company that claims to sell food would want to use the cursed dirt to garden and grow potatoes for chips.
It’s unclear at this time whether eating the sickening abomination birthed from that sawdust they call turf will result in any permanent injury, but do you really want to take the chance?
In a best case scenario you bite into a chip and it causes your ACL to snap. Worst case scenario you get blood poisoning from the sewage runoff. I’m not even exaggerating, FedEx Field was leaking sewage on two separate occasions this season.
Of course somebody in Washington could have tried to stop this from happening. They know better than anyone how terrible that field is. It completely destroyed Robert Griffin III’s career. In typical Washington Football Team fashion, they have done absolutely nothing, likely because they can’t handle any outside criticism.
Just look how they reacted to Jalen Hurts thoughtful plea for better safety measures at that garbage heap of a stadium.
Back to the Disgusting Chips…
This is apparently part of a larger promotion involving potatoes grown from the soil of every team. Honestly aside from WFT branded FedEx Field nightmare chips, it was probably a fun idea.
Based on what we can see this is a limited time deal. Lay’s says that a limited number of potatoes were grown using the world’s most disgusting stadium dirt.
You still have to take a pause and question whether you ever want to risk eating another Lays chip again after this. Do we really think they can isolate that kind of filth?
