A young mum was left disgusted after finding a chicken foetus inside of her Tesco egg.
I mean, obviously we all know what chicken eggs are and where they come from. However, turning a blind eye to it becomes a lot harder when you’ve got a half-formed chicken growing inside your breakfast snack.
Penny McAllister from Leicester went to make a round of pancakes with her eggs, but now she is “put off” for life after making the shocking discovery.
Writing a complaint to Tesco on Facebook, Penny wrote:
Morning Tesco, we cracked open some eggs this morning for breakfast to find two of the ones we have opened actually have a chicken foetus growing inside of them!
We daren’t open or use the rest! Bloody minging! What’s gone wrong here?
Tesco responded to the post, saying:
Hi Penny, I’m so sorry to see there is a chicken foetus in this egg! This is very concerning and @’m truly sorry for the frustration and disappointment caused.
Apparently the package has been sent off for inspection so they can offer her a full refund. I’m guessing she won’t be spending the money on a new packet of eggs.
I suppose it takes incidents like this to realise what eggs really are – chicken periods. There’s no way around it. It doesn’t stop them being delicious, especially when cooked up in an egg, cheese and bacon waffle. Mmmmm, chicken period.
