Human tooth found in Tesco meat sausages
WITH horse meat no longer on the menu, Tesco is looking elsewhere to bulk up its budget meat meals. But Tony Hinds is not keen on the latest animal product in his Finest herb and chive sausages: a human tooth.
Tesco has rewarded Mr Hinds with £25-worth of vouchers. He remains unhappy, however, perhaps hoping that, what this being the Finest range, the tooth should have been made from gold.
Says the unhappy shopper, who bought his tooth sausages at a Tesco in Sheerness, Kent:
“She [his lover was making sausage rolls] thought it might be a bit of hard skin or a gristle. It’s only when she picked it up she realised what it was.”
Tesco first apologised for the piece of “bone“. It then aded:
“We are sorry for any upset caused by this incident. However, after a thorough investigation, we are confident the tooth was not inside the product when it arrived at the store.”
What test did they conduct? Were all meat packers’ DNA analysed, the tooth dashed to forensics and workers ordered to bite into apples and any gaps matched to the denture? Says Mr Hinds:
“It’s not about the compensation. I want some reasonable acknowledgement of what it was. I’m not a greedy person but at the end of the day a £25 giftcard for a human tooth is not acceptable.”
Good job he’s not greedy. He might have eaten the thing…
