article imageBeef-and-onion-and-‘dirty-cloth’ pie bought in Milton Keynes

By Mathew Wace Peck     Apr 16, 2012 in Food
Milton Keynes - A British family recently got more than they bargained for when sitting down to a meal together, when they found something unpleasant in their meat pie.
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.
