Sheffield Woman Finds Needle In Breakfast Lard: Londoners Aghast

by | 14th, May 2011

KATIE Greaves, 26, of Longley, Sheffield, was shocked to find a needle sticking out from the block of lard she’d bought from a Tesco Metro outlet.

Katie sliced into the 27p pack of Tesco Value lard “while making sausage and bacon sandwiches at breakfast time for her son, Kian“. He’s 6 years old.

Says she:

“I think it’s a safety issue. Whatever it is, it should not be in a block of lard. I tried to cut a bit off and thought, this is unusual, I can’t cut through it. I cut round where I couldn’t get through and saw there was a bit of metal sticking out. I don’t know how it could have got in there, whether it’s a bit of machinery or what.”

She adds:

“It’s put me off shopping at Tesco full stop.”

But not lard. It’d take a lot more than a needle to put her off lard…

In other news: North-South divide as strong as ever.
