Bitterwallet asks... "What's the worst thing you've found in your dinner?"

16 November 2011

_56732037_jex_19798_de25-1 We’ve all been horrified by the news story of the man who found a dead bird in his Tesco baby leaf and rocket salad recently. We’re sure you were as distressed as we were to learn that Paul Streeter’s girlfriend was sick after discovering the avian carcass as she was licking her lips and preparing to tuck in.

Paul said: “Suddenly my girlfriend shrieked and couldn't believe what she'd found on her plate. She had ladled the salad onto her plate and thought she was cutting into one of the dark leaves and what she found was a dead bird. I didn't know what to think. I was concerned about the health of my family as they had eaten some of the salad.”

Tesco have promised a thorough investigation, and we’ll be investigating thoroughly next time we attempt to eat one of their ‘salads’ as well.

All of which brings us to the question, ‘what’s the greatest/worst thing YOU’VE ever found in some food?’ Tell us in the box below, and if you’ve got pictures, that’ll be even better.

Warning: There are NO PRIZES. We’re not even sure whether or not it’s ‘for fun’ or not.

    You omitted the rest of Paul's statement: "The events didn't exactly happen like that, I just opened the pack and saw it there but Id thought Id make it more dramatic because Im a cheap bastard and thought lying to make the story better so I get a few more quid selling it to the media." This level of lying puts Paul on par as that scummy woman who feeds her todder pasties from the 99p shop.

    I keep finding dead birds in my bed, it looks like they've been strangled so I just dump 'em in the canal.

    Wash and bag salad in fields and that's what you get. In future, stop being lazy and buy a lettuce. Disclaimer: Lettuce may require washing because was grown in the dirt.

    what ever happened to the odd, accidential, fully chocolate kit kat finger? That's when quality control becomes shit!

    I went for a student special curry lunch back in the day, within a remarkably short space of time a 'chicken' curry arrived. We started picking at this cooked meat and uncovered a bone carcasse that, according to my zoology lunch compatriot was that of a cat. Quite tasty but it was never a madras as advertised.
