I guess even if he complained and took it further chances are they would say it got in there somehow and they weren't aware of it.
I got a chunk of mud in a loaf of sliced bread once and when I sent it back they eventually wrote and said it was ''food grade grease from the machines'' it had stones in it and was mud, so they lied.
Same when I found a plaster (band aid) in my tub of 'finest' soup, they said it wasn't a plaster but packaging, I know it was a plaster.
Yesterday I ate some Waitrose Madeira and Wild Mushroom cup soup for lunch as in a hurry, I felt sick whilst drinking it and right at the bottom of the cup I got a mouthful of gritty mud, it wasn't unmixed soup it was mud, it tasted awful. I called the company who said they would look into it.
A lot of manufacturing processes are not hygienic or careful enough, I know some people who have worked in these industries and they say they wouldn't eat the products. The customer / consumer should have more rights.edit on 11-1-2014 by theabsolutetruth because: (no reason given)

Can you remember the flavour?
I have to go try this for myself.
It's a bit like putting an old penny in brown sauce.
I get a similar effect with a BBQ with the food catching fire, flames and black smoke!

I discovered something along these lines years a go with Pringles.
I was just a bored curious young teen with a lighter and a pack of Pringles and decided to see if they burn. To my surprise they not only burnt, but they caught fire, the flames were bright green and they MELTED.
I was left with a puddle of goo which then solidified after it cooled... If you think there's potato in Pringles, think again!
