    Default *trigger warning* (?) I would sue them too!!

    http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/-...in-bread-roll/ A heavily pregnant woman due to give birth in seven weeks has told of her horror after biting into a chicken and salad roll laced with tablets, a capsule and an empty plastic sachet.
    Alana Morris, 30, bought the food from the company operating the convenience store at BP Shinju in Broome on Wednesday and spat out her fist mouthful when she realised she had bitten into a capsule.
    “With that out came a white tablet and the remnants of a pink tablet, which I had already swallowed,” she said.
    “The other half of the capsule was in the roll along with a plastic sachet with Chinese writing on it stuck to the top half.” Ms Morris immediately drove back to the store on her way to Broome Hospital. She said her claims were dismissed.
    “One of the workers told me to calm down and that no one there was taking pills there,” she said.
    “When I left I reported this to the police. They came and spoke with me when I was in hospital getting bloods for a toxicology report.
    “I was terrified for the health of my baby.
    “I am due give birth in a few weeks and this really stressed me out.
    “I rang and spoke to the assistant manager on Thursday asking for a refund, an apology and a written statement as to how they intend to rectify the situation.
    “I was told I could get a refund but nothing else would happen until the manager returned on Monday.”
    Ms Morris said she still does not know what she swallowed and is expecting the toxicology report next week.
    “I intend to take legal action because of the stress this has put me under,” she said.
    “You walk into a shop and buy food to eat in good faith and this happens without any explanation or even apology. I am a pregnant woman and I really feared for my baby.”
    BP said it was extremely concerned but added it only supplied the station with fuel under its name.
    BP Shinju owner Brodie Tailor said he was told the matter was under investigation.
    “We have been told this is in the hands of police and have nothing else to say,” he said.

    Shire of Broome chief executive Kenn Donohoe said council officials had conducted an inspection of the premises and also spoken to Ms Morris.
    “The manager health services and an environmental health officer have now visited the business in question and conducted a food premises inspection in accordance with the Food Act 2008,” Mr Donohoe said.
    “The two officers also visited and interviewed the complainant, and collected the bread roll in question which will now be sent for analysis to determine what its contents are.
    “Once these results are received the Shire can then determine the most appropriate course of action.” What a remarkably unconcerned response from the shop too, they should be falling all over themselves to apologise and compensate her. This shop is in WA too. Unbelievable

    Oh goodness. That is absolutely horrible. I don't know if I'd sue to be honest. But they need to me made an example of in a big way and this type of thing should never happen, ever. I'd be panicked if I ate pills and didn't know what they were!

    Oh that is foul! (Pun intended).

    Sounds like whoever supplied those chickens were smuggling drugs inside them!

    Yuk, feel sick now

    I am not sure what they could have done...if the tablets were already inside the bread they would not have even seen them? Surely the issue is with the company that made the bread?

    As for suing, unless there are damages I don't understand what she is suing for...people just want a bloody cash pay out and it ****es me off.

    I do agree...i find i strange that a pregnant woman would be buying a chicken roll from a servo...certainly not going on any rec. eating lists!

    I respectfully disagree, if her baby is harmed she has every right to sue.

    They were on a chicken and salad roll not baked into the bread.

    I think she's right to cause a fuss, that's appalling.

    I agree she has every right to sue. I'd be horrified to find that in my sandwich any time, let alone while pg. who knows what she has ingested. I hope her and the baby have no issues.

    However....and I may get shot down for this....I struggle to get past the fact she thought it ok to eat a chicken & salad pre-packaged roll - from a service station no less - while pg. God knows how long it had been there.

    Straight up I admit I certainly didn't follow the recommended avoidance food list 100%, but common sense prevailed. I wouldn't even eat a chicken roll from a servo when not pg!

    yes "if" the bubs is harmed or if she faces any out of pocket expenses then I understand the concept of suing...but if it turns out that it was harmless...then suing is not something I would do.
