Yesterday I discovered two foreign bodies in a cherry scone purchased from Sainsbury’s Archer Road, Sheffield. I think these are pieces of what seem to be cartridge paper – rolled up. I thought at first they were pieces of animal skin, I took one of the pieces to Sainsbury’s Dronfield which they kept, along with one of the intact scones.They gave me a new pack and a gift token for £5-00. I have contacted Environmental Health and they will be contacting me next week.
Imagine my dismay, therefore, on eating another scone – from the same batch as the first lot to find yet another piece. This is clearly unacceptable and I think you should be informed – hence my e-mail.
These scones are apparently manufactured elsewhere and then frozen and the local store then prepares them for sale. According to the label, these faulty goods were manufactured in February 2009.
