The father of the house, Leigh Sylvester, was a quarter way through eating the beef-and-onion pie on his plate when he discovered a dirty dishcloth in it.
Speaking to Metro
, his wife, Vicky said, "It was shocking and looked like it had been used for wiping machinery or something. It was heavily stained and made all our stomachs heave."
Vicky – who apparently bought the beef-and-onion pie from the Wolverton Milton Keynes branch of Farmfoods – added
, "It was revolting. The cloth wasn't even clean, it had stains all over it [...] The worst thing of all is that we don't know what the cloth had been used on."
Digital Spy reports that
the family were offered £20 and, then, £50 in compensation from Farmfoods, but that they had declined, with Vicky saying, "We're not eating pie ever again, let alone stepping foot into the shop again."
Meanwhile, according to Digital Spy
, a Farmfoods spokesperson stated that they have passed on the complaint to the pie's manufacturer, FreshPack.
