Dear Tesco/celery fans & Co,

I have found disgusting red worms in a pack of celery I bought from them recently and thought I would share. I found them wrapping themselves around the smaller pieces in the middle -sadly this was after already eating two :zomg: which tasted funny.

I know you have to wash them before eating but this is just revolting! Should I write and complain?

Here is a pic: :eek4:

write a letter to complaints department with that picture, say you had already eaten some adn that you want your money back. My brother did that for weetabix that had some bug in it and instead of being refunded the price of a box he had a cheque for £40 sent :\

Whilst Tesco endeavours to produce the highest quality celery for its customers, occasionally some mistakes are made. We are sorry you were dissatisfied with the quality of celery you purchased and will be refunding you the full cost of the bag and sending you a voucher for 10 free packs of celery as a gesture of goodwill.

They'll send it to a lab for inspection then refund you the cost.

Weetabix is different - it's a ready made product. Celery is grown in fields, and strangely enough there can be bugs there.

it wasnt about the product, more so about complaints i was refering to, OP should complain tbh and at least get his money back for the celery and yes i am aware that bugs can be present but it is tescos responsibility to ensure that it is fit for human consumption, obvviously its not possible to get rid of all the bugs but they should give money back when cases like this occur

Its gross that celery is grown in a field? Your celery probably has worms slime all over it.. just because you cannot see it... Its natural..

It is fit for human consumption.. something called the tap was invented.

Also it would probably do humans some good to eat it, actually give the immune system something to work on for once..

How do you know its fit for human consumption? What if they get ill? Its a worm, not a bit of dirt that can be washed off.

You expect a certain standard of food when you buy them from shops, they are supposed to be cleaned. It's like those poisonous spiders that were found in a bunch of bananas, you don't expect it to happen and it shouldn't. Company's wouldn't provide apologies and refunds if it wasn't necessary.

I didn't know worms were water resistant?

What if they get ill? I think that proves the point that humans are going back in evolutionary terms, we hide ourselves from nature and do not build up a proper immune system.. and then when you get old it screws you over big time.
