By NICHOLAS SAGANAssociated PressThe photos, posted online, show a woman cooking a hot dog with a plastic fork and using a wooden spoon to carve the meat into small pieces.
Another woman is working on a chicken dish while another uses a metal spoon.
Another man and woman use a fork to slice up a turkey.
The woman in the photos has the knife pointing down to the bottom of the pot and says she is trying to get the meat cooked evenly.
The photos have since been removed from the internet and it is unclear if the woman is showing the meat.
The pictures, which are posted online by the Associated Press news agency, show the woman making a hot-dog sandwich with a knife.
Her husband, the caption says, is working to remove the meat from the food and it was “very hot.”
The Associated Press is not naming the woman because she is not being charged with any crime.
The website says the photos were taken in the city of Cuarto in the state of Coahuila, which is about 400 miles (650 kilometers) northwest of Mexico City.
Cuarto, known for its restaurants and hotels, is one of Mexico’s poorest cities, with poverty rates at more than 25 percent.
