    This is a good point.

    The article seems to focus, or deliberately draw your attention, to the fact she's pregnant though. Implying that this makes the situation worse (no doubt due to potential health risks to bub). Perhaps this is why some of us have made mention of the poor food choice in the first place.

    Maybe the article didn't need to specify she was pregnant, because you're right, the person ingesting it, or whether they *should* have been, is largely irrelevant.

    those pills could have been in anything though. What if they were in product not deemed "risky" or advised against. Would people then be more concerned? Maybe i just see this as an issue that no matter who it happened to needs to be addressed and need to be investigated and rectified so it doesn't happen again and less about what the pills and plastic were in iykwim

    I'm surprised that people are even bringing up that she shouldn't be eating chicken rolls from a servo! She took such a small risk in doing that - totally her call with her body and her baby! She wasn't taking a risk that there might be pills in her sandwich!!

    Totally agree. As I said earlier, the pills could have been in a pie and it would still be appalling. Something definitely needs to be done.

    I think she should have let the police do their work first , one actually finding out what was in the pills and bag ,two trying to find out who put it there and then with the evidence go from there. It is not even said if the sandwiches are made on site and because the store is a franchise BP don't really have anything to do with that part of the business so it would be hard to sue them for it. If someone was found guilty of putting the items in the food then she could go for criminal compensation which is a much easier process rather than suing someone.

    She did speak to the police- where does it say that police aren't following up these things???

    So a person was hungry and purchased food but because someone deems that it was not the right for them to be eating for whatever reason, they should have known better? A person doesn't reasonably assume that they are going to be copping a mouthful of drugs when they bite into a chicken roll, no matter where it is from.

    I'm so shocked by the idiotic logic that she shouldn't have brought the item because she was oregnant. Honestly wtf?!?!

    I run a food business and that crap does not fly. Worst most dangerous cross contamination possible. Every food businesses worst nightmare.

    Whoever produced the food is liable and the store owner if buying off a third party is liable if they haven't followed due process.

    Crazy crazy crazy thing to happen given the measure we are supposed to adhere to when producing food. The only thing crazier are all these ridiculous posts!!!

    Oh wow! The poor woman to have eaten this thing laced with drugs, and to then be judged for what she chose to eat. The issue here is the fact the food was contaminated, not what a pregnant woman should not be eating! For all we know the package could have said "Made fresh today" and she could have assumed it was fine to eat. Whatever! The problem here is that someone needs to be accountable for what was in that sandwich. Someone put that horrid stuff in there with the intent to harm.
