WESTBOROUGH (CBS) – A shipping error is being blamed for a rather unwelcome package that BJ’s Wholesale’s headquarters in Westborough received Friday.

The package contained a dead woman’s torso.

Westborough police Sgt. Jonathan Kalagher told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 that the package, which was sent from New Jersey, was supposed to go to a research facility in Florida, but a shipping label mix-up landed it in Massachusetts.

“Somehow the packing label got it to their address in Westborough,” Sgt. Kalagher said.

Kalagher says an employee sorting through packages saw the description on this particular one, realized immediately that there was an error, and did not open it.

“They started opening the package and they saw the description of what they were opening, that it was a torso of a female. They never saw the torso. They saw there was packaging and some type of gel. They immediately notified their supervisor,” he said.

The company contacted the research facility, which made arrangements to have it picked up and shipped.
