Mum who found ‘plastic strips’ in her pack of 89p bacon vows never to shop at Tesco again
A mother has vowed never to shop at Tesco again after she found “plastic strips” in her pack of 89p bacon while cooking with her 16-year-old son.
Taria Cornelius, from Chilworth, was making breakfast for her family when her son Bradley spotted the plastic while pulling apart the meat.
The mother, a former loyal Tesco shopper, said that if they hadn’t noticed it “could have taken the children to hospital as it is a choking hazard”.
“It was only 89p so not very expensive but that’s not the point. There’s a lot of it and I’ve got a pack left in the freezer that I can’t cook now just in case,” she said.
“I don’t know if other people have gotten it, but it’s a pretty dangerous thing and I think it should be recalled.”

The mum contacted Tesco and asked for a refund but they said she would have to go back to the store in person to get her money back
Ms Cornelius contacted Tesco and asked for a refund, but was told it would only be possible if she took the bacon to the store herself to get her money back.
“I don’t drive and my husband is disabled. We live in Chilworth. I ordered the bacon through my online grocery store. If I wanted to get to Tesco I would have to take the train to Park Barn supermarket in Guildford,’ she said.
“It would end up costing me more to get the train there for the refund.”
After explaining her situation to Tesco, the mum claimed she still had the same answer, that she would have to return to the store in person.
“Tesco just doesn’t care and I’ll never shop there again. I’ve reached out to the Food Standards Agency to investigate,” she added.
A Tesco spokesman said: “We’re sorry to hear about this. If a customer is not satisfied with a product, they can always return it to us for a full refund.’
Tesco encourages customers to contact the Customer Engagement Center for further assistance if they are unhappy with their shopping experience.
MailOnline has contacted Tesco for further comments.
