According to friends, a Tuscaloosa man, Chris Burke, purchased Ruffles potato chips at a Shell station on Skyland Boulevard in Tuscaloosa.

After crushing them up, he swallowed them and realized a pharmaceutical pill was inside the bag.

He immediately contacted poison control and they recommended that he go to the nearest emergency room.

The pill was white with red numbers on it. We're waiting for an update on his condition.

We have also contacted the service station in Tuscaloosa for a comment. As of press time we have not received a response.

This story is developing and we will have further updates coming as soon as we receive more information.

This is the original recent post below from social media.
