A mother was horrified to find a furry thing in a package of vegetables.
Melissa Gordon of South Gloucestershire, England, said that she was preparing dinner for her 3-year-old daughter, Aaliyah King, and her daughter’s friend on Sunday, when she found “something strange” in a bag of frozen vegetables.
Gordon said that she bought the vegetables two weeks ago at an Iceland supermarket in Bradley Stoke, Bristol.
Gordon said that when she opened the bag and poured half of it in a pan to cook, she saw a long furry tail in it. “I have a phobia of that kind of thing, honestly, it’s disgusting,” she said.
After filing a complaint, Melissa received an apology from Iceland, and she was asked to return the package so that they can investigate the incident.
“We are very sorry to hear that you had found something unpleasant in our mixed vegetables. We can understand the disappointment this has caused and we are sorry,” they wrote.
“To find the reasons for this problem, we need the original packaging and the object found in the product, so we can fully investigate the vendor. Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention,” they added.
