article imageGrocery store customer finds rat's head in bag of spinach

By Owen Weldon     Feb 18, 2015 in Odd News
High Wycombe - A woman said she was horrified when she discovered a preserved rat's head in a bag of spinach that she purchased from a grocery store.
Terri Powis, 33, from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, said that she found the thumb-sized rat's head as she started to defrost the spinach.
Powis said at first she didn't know what it was, but once she did finally realize it was the head of a rat, she thought it was horrible. She added that it was fresh and pink, as well as a bit squashed. She said it mist have been frozen right after it was severed.
Powis was going to use the spinach, which was Asda's own-brand, which she purchased from her local Asda branch, to prepare a meal for her mother on January 19.
Powis phoned Asda and complained to them, and they did apologize to her, but she claims that the Asda branch didn't take her complaint seriously.
She said the way they acted was as if it happened on a daily basis, and was told to just bring the spinach back to the store.
The Wycombe District Council was notified about the incident and it is investigating it. An Asda spokesman said they will work with local authorities while they conduct their investigation.
