A pregnant woman has found a mouse’s head in a pre-prepared curry purchased from an Asda store in Hatfield.

Tricia Rankin had eaten two mouthfuls of her lamb birivani before noticing that it contained a mouse’s head.

“I was up all night throwing up,” she told reporters. “If I had the head, that means someone else has got the body.”

Despite these fears Jennifer England, spokesperson for the supermarket chain owned by US retail giant Wal-Mart, told just-food that this is an isolated incident and that the company had appologised to the customer.

“We’re very, very sorry and are bending over backwards to get to the bottom of this and will keep the customer fully informed. It’s an unfortunate one off – we’ve had no other complaints about any of our ready meals,” she said.
