Blog: No egg on Asda’s face

Catherine Sleep | 18 October 2004

Checkout staff at UK grocer Asda have been asked to be vigilant when selling eggs in the run-up to Halloween. In recent years members of the public have complained of teenagers using eggs as trick or treat missiles.

So, eggs will henceforth be treated in the same way as alcohol and cigarettes, and be off limits for the under-16s, unless they form part of a normal-looking shopping basket. Pity the poor cashier who has to implement this ban; imagine the grief (s)he could come in for.
