A supermarket customer claims she was left feeling "physically sick" after finding a caterpillar in a sandwich that she had brought to share with her daughter.

Faye Wood, 27, said she spotted the "big" creature creeping out of her Ploughman's sandwich which she had bought from the reduced section at Sainsbury's Local on Ransom Road, Mapperley, Nottingham.

The 27-year-old, who works at Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham, said she had brought the sandwich shortly after finishing her shift and had already eaten some of it at home when she made the shocking discovery.

The mum said she saw a caterpillar in the remaining half of the packaging when she went to give the sandwich to her daughter, reports Nottinghamshire Live.

She said: "My two-year-old wanted to taste it so I grabbed it from the fridge and when I saw it I started heaving – I was physically sick.

"It was a big caterpillar crawling out of the sandwich and out of the packaging.

"I never had a problem before so it was a shock for sure."

The angry customer has vowed to "never buy sandwiches from supermarkets ever again" following the incident.

She added: "When you have been at work all day and you get back at 7 you do not really want to cook, you just want a snack or something.

"I have never had a problem with sandwiches – I do get them quite a lot.

"But this is unacceptable.

"I will never buy sandwiches from supermarkets ever again because it has really put me off and I will just be thinking about that all the time."

Faye submitted a complaint to Sainsbury's on November 22 with a video of the caterpillar crawling on the sandwich packaging.

She added: "I am not bothered about the money really because it was only 54p.

"It is more about making people aware that this is happening and it cannot happen again.

"We just want them to make sure that everything is checked and washed properly.

"However I do expect some kind of compensation as well."

A Sainsbury’s spokesperson said: “Cases like this are extremely rare because we have processes in place to prevent them from happening.

"We are contacting Faye to apologise for her experience and we are investigating with our supplier.”
