When several people in town die of food poisoning, the butcher intends to leave town, but his wife becomes hysterical when she realizes her husband has sold tainted meat to the family that her little boy is having dinner with right now. The boy comes home ill and expires. The wife seizes a carving knife and advances upon her husband. The next day, she glassy-eyed offers the customers "tainted meat? tainted meat anyone?" at the meat display counter where her husband's body has been neatly chopped into serving portions.

A year later they return to the same town where the murder was conducted and the dead woman and beast rise from the grave to seek their revenge.
