Shopper's horror as 'cat excrement' found in Tesco Extra bag

Quote
The store manager Leroy Robinson wrote to her on November 6 to apologise for the "ghastly" incident.

He said a full investigation had been carried out and it was believed a stray cat had managed to get into her shopping bags, "unsighted" by staff.

My initial thought was were the poor couple blind or at least visually challenged.

Then I read
Quote
Mr Watson, 32, said: "I took three mouthfuls and then saw it. My first reaction was why have I got a soggy fishcake on my plate?

Please look at the picture in relation to the article.. Not noticed before three mouthfulls!!! particularly during the preparation of putting it on a plate!!!

Quote
If it was a maggot or something I could almost understand it, but how a whole bird was not picked up - I have just been gobsmacked by the whole thing.

What like not picked up by you when you turned the packet out on your plate!!!

Do me a favour !!

I wonder if the couple were Which? Members?

My Opinion is exactly that, Mine.  Based on my view of what I know , see and what I would do.

I think the following quote should not be overlooked "We only had a few low lights on so we were effectively eating by candlelight.", and the photo has been taken with a flash.

Lets face it any company that can get over 25% of a horse in a small burger could get a little bird in a packet of salad  :)

"Then I noticed the dirt - it looked foul, and I was shocked. So I took a photo from the queue in the checkout next to it.

"Because that photo didn't do it justice I decided to leave my shopping where it was, and take a better photo, or two... so I moved round to do that. I didn't get too close, because I didn't want to breathe in that horrible dust!"
Well done to that shopper  :d: THAT is no small amount of sh**  :o

Tesco were quick to point out this was an isolated case.
Course it was, they should know they have thousands of isolated cases of one sort or another all over the UK  world  8-)

There is absolutely no excuse for this level of infestation. A good company would have robust systems to deal with rodents. Tesco have once again show that they only ever want to do things on the cheap.
The cost of proper housekeeping and maintainance pales into insignificance against the cost of a court appearance and the loss of reputation.
Managers or directors should be sacked for allowing this sort of thing.

Julie Taylor said she was eating the dessert with her children when she bit into what she believes were tiny shards of glass.

The family were eating the Tesco own-brand knickerbocker glory at their home in Wallsend, North Tyneside, when they made the discovery.
