Man finds rotten tooth in his Tesco yoghurt

28 November 2011


Here at Bitterwallet, we’re always happy to have our stomachs turned by hearing about stuff that people have found in their shop-bought food. So we’re struggling to hold on to our lunch with this one – the tale of a man who found a rotten tooth in his yoghurt.

The man is David Casey, and to make matters worse, he is currently suffering from a stomach tumour and could probably do without ingesting someone else’s rotting mouth-peg. He’s due to have two thirds of his stomach removed in an op before Christmas, but that’s probably the least of his problems right now.

The yoghurt in question was a Tesco own-brand Devonshire-style fudge one and staff at the Arena Park store in Coventry were more than happy to give David the 68p that he’d paid for the thing as a refund.

He says that Tesco are investigating the incident and have sent him £15 vouchers by way of an apology on two occasions, but he has refused them both. He says: “They sent me a copy of the report in to it and it said there's a chance the tooth could have got in to the yoghurt. But then it goes on to basically say it must have been my tooth.”

A Tesco spokesman said: ‘We take matters of this kind very seriously and we are looking into it.”

    Who'd have thought that putting on loads of weight would make Shane MacGowan look more healthy?

    TESCO should stand by their ground. Go for a DNA test. The ones telling the truth should get £5K off the other.
  • The f.
    Surely it wouldn't be too difficult to rule out it being one of his teeth by way of a quick check to see if any were missing? Where's Columbo when you need him.

    But he is missing teeth just look at his picture.
