Woman finds used condom in can of Knorr tomato paste

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.)

When Cate Barrett bought a jar of tikka masala sauce from her local Asda store, she was expecting it to contain a bit of a kick. But what she wasn't expecting to find was the dead mouse which had somehow ended up in the jar - along with the rest of her favorite sauce. The nursery worker had begun making dinner for herself and her boyfriend, Nigel, when she poured the sauce into the pan, and noticed it was a little lumpy. As she began stirring the sauce through, she noticed what looked like whiskers and a tail - and immediately knew it was a dead rodent. The couple took the dead animal and the jar of Asda Extra Special sauce back to the shop where a manager apologized and said it would be sent for examination
