Celebrity chef Paula Deen was in Atlanta helping the Hosea Feed the Hungry charity load a truck with food donations when an errantly tossed ham hit her in the face, leaving her with a sore nose but no other apparent injury.

"I thought it busted my lip, but it didn't," Deen tells She made light of the whole mishap, saying through laughter: "Ran head on to a hog."
