Eating my store brand weetabix this morning and noticed something very non-weetabix tasting and out of my mouth I pull a blue plaster. Due to it's size I'm assuming it was on someones ear covering an earring.

Absoloutly fuming about this because it's just lucky it was me eating it, and not my 18 month old boy. There is a very good chance he would have swallowed the plaster and, well, I don't even want to think about that.

What is the best thing I can do here? As you can imagine, I don't want some replacement Weetabix!

Doctors and get tested for AIDs.

This tbh.

How did you not spot a vlue plaster? Did you just insert the whole weetabix in your gob?
You assume earring or something? Very much doubt it, its not school!. They are used to cover cuts. So whatever manky blood was on it, well, you just ate it . . . .

They will want to know, they'll also want to know the batch number etc so they can track down where and when it happened.

You'll more than likely get a load of vouchers and a big sorry letter.

Somewhere in the middle.
The thing is, Weetabix are large individual pieces. When I take mine out the packet I hold each one at a time from packet to bowl, How the hell you didnt see a blue plaster in the first place is beyond me. Id be surprised it it was actually INSIDE the the weetabix from the start.

Just send an email so they know to step up their Quality Assurance. It's going to happen again, though, it's unavoidable.

I got a KFC meal once where there was a feather still attached to a bit of chicken. Admittedly it was coated and fried, but even I draw the line there. Complained to the branch and got £50 store credit. True story.
