Woman finds used condom in can of Knorr tomato paste

by | 28th, June 2012

TO Brazil,where Cintia Mayerle has found a used condom in her tin of Knorr tomato paste. As promotional offers go, this one lacks local knoweldege. Brazil is largely Catholic country where contraception is frowned upon. Mayerle is upset. She sues the paste’s makers, British firm Unilever, for £3,100, including £1,110 for “moral damages“. Hard not to sympathise with Mayerle. Finding the inedible inside your food is revolting. (Unless you eat at mobile kebab vans, where the expected is part of the thrill.)
