Fancy A Salad?

Quote:
A couple have demanded compensation from Tesco after finding a fully-intact but emaciated carcass of a bird in a bag of 'fresh' supermarket salad.
Vegetarian Julia Flynn, 39, from Brinscombe in Somerset, found the bird after serving a portion of the supermarket's own brand rocket salad onto her plate.
The four-inch long dark coloured bird's skeletal remains were among the leaves.



The teacher fled the table and was later physically sick after making the discovery as she prepared to eat her dinner with partner Paul Streeter and his three children.
Tesco pledged yesterday to fully investigate the find but the family have now demanded compensation from the supermarket.
Mr Streeter said: 'I couldn't believe my eyes. It was horrific. Julia was seconds away from eating it.

'The bird was emaciated and about four inches long. At first Julia thought it was a leaf and tried to separate it with her fork.
'Then she just screamed and went to be sick.
'I took the bird and the bag of salad straight back to the store - I was furious. We are owed some compensation for this.'
Mr Streeter had previously bought the bag of baby leaf rocket salad from the Burnham-on-Sea branch of Tesco on Saturday.
He had put the salad into a bowl on his dining table and was still cooking a pizza for his three sons when he heard Julia shriek.





He added: 'She just shouted "oh my god there's a bird in my salad". I didn't know what to think. I was concerned about the health of my family as they had eaten some of the salad.
'I took the bird to the Tesco store - where I have shopped for 11 years - but they just mentioned club card points.
'They wanted me to hand them over the bird but I refused and took it back home.
'People have asked me what kind of bird it was, but I really do not know. All I know is that it was truly disgusting.'
Paul has now lodged a formal complaint with the store. They have removed the bird and vowed to fully investigate.
A Tesco spokesman said: 'We take matters of this kind extremely seriously and are very disappointed to learn of this incident.
'Ensuring our food is of the highest quality is extremely important to us and we and our suppliers have robust systems in place to prevent foreign objects getting into products.
'We are in contact with the customer and have apologised.'

Calcium is good for you. And in this case, extra crunchy.

Re: Fancy A Salad?

It doesn't look like the bird ate much of the salad.

Re: Fancy A Salad?

She's wanting monetary compensation for finding a dead bird in some salad? I wonder how much would suffice...?
