An Isle of Wight woman has taken to social media to express her disgust – and to warn others – after finding a safety pin attached to hair INSIDE a tiger bread baguette that she brought from Tesco Extra Ryde.
Karen Peck purchased the bread from Tesco’s main store on the Island over the weekend. However, she was soon put off from eating it when she made the unusual discovery whilst making sandwiches.
Posting on Facebook, Karen said:
“Anyone buying bread from Tesco Ryde be vigilant.. found a safety pin in mine attatched to long hair!!!! “
One commenter, Dee Gayton, has responded by saying:
“Oh my goodness that’s disgusting and could’ve been absolutely disastrous. Glad you’ve taken it further and reported it to environmental health”.
Tesco has offered compensation of £20, but Karen has declined this offer and raised the matter with the Isle of Wight Council’s Environmental Health department.
It’s understood the bread is baked in-store but it is unclear is the dough is made off-site.
Tesco has been approached for a statement.
