When a Victorian family bought a batch of Woolworths Chicken Kievs for a delicious weeknight dinner, they were expecting a tasty feast.
However their meal soon took a sinister turn when they found what they believed to be bits of broken blue plastic inside the crumbed chicken portions.
Revealing his horror to the Geelong Advertiser, a man - who asked to stay anonymous - said the find ruined their family dinner. He went on to say that it looked like someone had “smashed up a blue pen lid” inside the Chicken Kievs, which was bought from Woolworths at Bell Post.
‘We had just started eating the dinner my daughter had cooked and I said: “what the h*ll is that?”’ he told the Geelong Advertiser. ‘It was like someone had smashed up a blue pen lid inside the chicken.’
A Woolworths spokesperson told the Geelong Advertiser that they were investigating the incident.
‘At Woolworths we take food safety and quality very seriously,’ a statement read. ‘We’ve seen the customer’s report and we’re looking into the matter with our supplier in line with established procedures.’
The report comes just as a week after a shopper reportedly found a piece of metal in her Woolies yoghurt.
