    I bought a chicken and salad roll from a bakery yesterday because I thought it was a better choice than a sausage roll, pie or something sweet. I didn't realise I should be so ashamed of taking the healthy option...... Maybe I'm just stupid, but as a genuine question what's so bad about a cooked chicken sandwich ??? Shouldn't all food meet health safety standards regardless of where it is sold?

    When pregnant it's not recommended to eat cold meats and salads in the off chance it's contaminated with salmonella or listeria. Both can make anyone quite ill but carry grave risks for unborn babies.

    There is a small risk of listera with chicken tiny, absolutely tiny risk. We each have our own risk assessments, and to be honest, I can think of heaps of things way worse than eating a chicken sandwich, but each to their own.

    I imagine this women must be enormously stressed. I hope no harm comes to her or her baby. The stress alone could cause havoc in her pregnancy.

    I wonder if the roll was made onsite? If so, they have a lot to answer for. Someone has a lot to answer for, that's for sure.

    I have a friend who once bought a chicken roll late at night from a servo. The attendant actually said to her 'I wouldn't eat that if I was you'. Well, she was hungry and ate it regardless. She ended up being violently ill with food poisoning.

    If the pills were found in a fruit salad brought at the same servo then half the replies on this thread would be invalid.

    The issue is that there were pills in her food she brought not what the food was

    Good old Bubhub. Victim blaming since 2002.

    Who cares what she, as the pregnant woman in question, chose to eat. Every single person, whether pregnant or not should be able to purchase a simple sandwich and not have it laced with god knows what!

    I think we live in an overly litigious society, but in her shoes, I'd probably sue too. Obviously there is something dodgy going on somewhere that that many pills ended up in a sandwich.

    Wow, just wow. I can't believe the first few posts focussing on her food choices, omg. What is wrong with some of you? Maybe it was heated to a high heat in a microwave making it safer, maybe it was fresh, maybe it was the only thing available for miles. Who bloody well cares. Finding pills in a roll is horrific. I am glad to see common sense and empathy prevailed in most of the posts that followed.

    Poor family, I hope it all works out for them, they must be terrified.

    In the UK they do not suggest steering clear of sliced meats etc for listeria risk, as it is deemed such a tiny risk.

    Ah BubHub. Just when I think I have it figured out you still manage to surprise me.

    Could be VP, Broome is the next suburb from me VP and I never heard of this story til now which is surprising, it seems to have been kept quiet. I'm on a few discussion boards for Broome and no talk of this, unusual as not much doesn't get discussed on there. We often get food from that BP and never had a problem, food is always fresh and I'm pretty sure the sandwiches and rolls are made on the premises not supplied by a 3rd party.
