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.)

A man found part of a severed finger packed inside a pint of frozen custard he'd bought from a Kohl's Frozen Custard shop, and officials said it belonged to a worker injured in a food-processing machine accident there. The customer, Clarence Stowers, said he put the finger in his mouth, thinking it was a piece of candy when he opened the pint at home. Stowers said he spat the object out, and "I said, 'God, this ain't no nut!' So I came in here to the kitchen and rinsed it off with water and realized it was a human finger and I just started screaming." The custard shop owner, Craig Thomas, said that the 23-year-old employee who lost the finger had dropped a bucket while working with a machine that dispenses the custard. He tried to catch the bucket when the accident occurred. Thomas said that as several employees tried to help the injured worker, a drive-thru window attendant apparently scooped the chocolate custard into a pint before being told what had happened.
