A fly and its eggs were found in a packet of mince that had been bought at Pak’nSave Whakatane, prompting Foodstuffs to apologise to the affected customer. According to a company statement, it appeared to be ‘an isolated incident’.
“A small hole in the packaging was breached by a very determined fly,” a spokesperson said. “The likelihood is that the packaging was damaged on shelf when other customers were removing product. The store inspected all remaining product, and we are pleased to advise that all other packs were appropriately sealed.”
