A MUM-of-two was horrified to find a piece of glass inside a sausage.
Abi Brooks was enjoying a New Year’s Day sausage butty with her two sons Harvey, two, and Lewis, one.
The 20-year-old of Bold Street, Accrington, had just taken a bite of her food when she felt something crack inside her mouth.
Abi said: "I was just eating a sandwich when I heard this crunch. I thought I’d hurt a tooth but I felt something else in my mouth."
She was horrified to discover a 2cm piece of what appeared to be glass inside.
Abi said: "It was awful. We all stopped eating. Thank goodness it wasn’t one of the boys."
Full-time mum Abi has not yet been to a dentist but thinks she may have broken a tooth.
The sausages were bought at Blackburn’s Asda store by Abi’s mum Natasha Burton, who is a regular Asda customer.
She said: "I buy the Smart Price sausages all the time but this has never happened before."
Abi and Natasha went to the Accrington branch of Asda last Friday to report the incident.
They were told nothing could be done until an investigation was carried out.
Natasha, 40, said: "I took the glass and the packaging with me.
"The sell-by date was 5 January so the packages could still be on the shelf. They need five to six weeks to carry out a full investigation.
"They gave me no refund and did not say if anything could be done. I gave them a chance to sort it out and it doesn’t seem like they have."
Abi added: "The back of the package says if a customer is not satisfied the store will offer money back.
"I am not happy about this as I got nothing."
A spokeswoman for Asda confirmed the incident was under investigation but said the store wanted to inspect the piece of glass to determine its origins.
She said: "At Asda we take customer services very seriously and so we are extremely eager to look into this for Mrs Burton.
"We would advise her to send us the glass so that we can launch a full investigation into the matter and resolve it as quickly as possible."
