Asda baby food ‘had mystery creature’s decapitated head in it’ claims fuming mum

A disgusted mum says she found the head of “an animal or creature of some description” in a sealed baby food container.

And, says Macala Large, because she only found the head after her year-old son had eaten about half of the tub, there’s a chance that he might have eaten the rest of the mystery animal’s body without her realising.

Macala, 26, returned to her local Asda and showed staff the severed “animal head.”

"The staff thought it was disgusting and were really shocked – they couldn't believe that it was actually in baby food.

"The employee said that because it's actually in baby food, and it's not just a foreign object – it's an animal or creature of some description, that they get prioritised.

"They apologised and said how bad it was and that the sooner they get it sent off – the sooner they'll come back as to what it was.

"They took it off me so they can do an investigation – it was logged on a computer so they could send it away the same night and it would be received the next day."

Macala claims she was told by Asda that they take 'matters like this very seriously – especially in baby food'.

But she was 'disappointed' when a letter arrived in the post the next day to say Asda would aim to let her know the outcome within 40 working days.

Macala said: "Forty working days isn't taking it seriously – and I wanted to know what was in my baby's food.

She says that there’s a danger that other packets of the Asda Little Angels Organic Pasta with Chicken and Mushroom meal might be contaminated with parts of the alien-looking creature.

Macala said: "I called them a couple of weeks later to see if they had an update – the person I spoke to got quite snotty with me and said they're taking up to 40 working days and can't give me any more answers and need to wait until they hear from their team.

"After the letter they haven't got in contact with me whatsoever – I've been the one who's ringing them up and chasing them constantly.

"I called them again and they said that they'll get somebody to call me back – they didn't have the decency to call me back, they just sent me an e-mail saying sorry we're still investigating we'll keep you updated.

"This has made me feel disappointed and sad – it's a massive supermarket and for them not to do something is disgusting.”

Macala turned to Facebook to raise awareness among other parents and her post has received some 3,000 likes, comments and shares – and a lot of speculation over what reg mini beast might be be.

Macala said: "I have no idea what it is, that's why I want to know – some people have said it looks like a newt's head."

One commenter said: "I thought fish, frog, but it does quite look like a little snake head or lizard."

Another added: "To me this looks like an undeveloped frog tadpole," and someone else weighed in, saying: "Pretty sure that's some type of reptile, not a fish as I don't know any common fish with eyes that stick out that far."

An Asda spokesperson said: "We investigate complaints about our Little Angels products with the utmost importance, and whilst the process can take some time we hope that this reassures our customers that we are conducting an in-depth investigation.

"In cases like this, that process involves looking at the manufacturing process and where foreign objects could find their way into a product – from field to fork.

"We are very sorry for any distress this complaint has caused Macala but would reassure all our Little Angels customers that have not received any other complaints of this nature and we are continuing to investigate with our supplier."
