    After a late finish for an open day at work we decided on a simple tea - some soup! my other half warmed up some heinz veg soup and was merrily eating it only to find a piece of PLASTIC in it!!! [​IMG] At first it looked like a manky plaster so how I laughed!! When he unravelled it we found it was definately a piece of thin plastic wrapping. How grim though???? :confused:

    Euuw indeed, but I think I would have been relieved at it being plastic wrapping rather that someones old plaster. [​IMG]

    I once found what looked like a piece of lead at the bottom of a back of crisps. I got the dinner lady (yes it was a long time ago ) to send it back to the manufacturers for me and a week later I had a parcel of 10 packets of crisps sent to me.

    In days gone by when money was a lot tighter :biggrin: I was persuaded to shop at Netto. I opened a tin of sweetcorn. I saw what looked like a length of kernels stuck together in a row only to realise it was a caterpillar! :eek: Hence I never have been able to shop there since. :frown:

    Oooh was it blue? I found something like that in my chrunchynut clusters once- it almost looked a bit like a piece of blue rubber glove had got mixed up into it and covered in the honey stuff to make it look like a piece of blue rope.

    Did you complain!?! I had just done food tech at the time so i wrote a letter saying they obviously werent carrying out there crtical control checks etc properly. I got a five pound voucher in return. tho for some strange reason i wasnt that keen to go and buy another kelloggs cereal right away?!:confused:

    I remember when I was a first year student I was in fully catered halls of residence, and one of my friends found a nail clipping in her dinner. Don't think anybody got compensation though!

    Did he still eat it though? A bit like green crisps, leave them until the end and then eat them anyway?!
