Mum Vows To Never Eat Crisps Again After Finding Cooked Spider In Packet Of Walkers
| Last updated
The simple pleasure of enjoying a bag of crisps has been forever ruined for one UK mum after she found a cooked spider inside of her packet of Walkers.
And if that weren't horrifying enough, Sabrina Hussain from Birmingham was already halfway through before she made the discovery.
The mum-of-two reacted how many of us would and ended up running to the toilet to be sick. Now she's seeking answers as to how the eight-legged critter made its way into the packet.
Speaking about the grisly incident, which unfolded on 28 July, she told Birmingham Live: "I’m still feeling really sick. I really don’t know what it is, it looks like a stripped spider that’s been cooked in with the crisps.
‘It looked like some kind of string attaching it to the crisp, it was dangling off it. I don’t want to touch it, it’s disgusting."
Sabrina went on to describe how it all started with a craving for a packet of Walkers' cheese and onion crisps.
"I was just craving some this morning so I went to the shop and bought some," she explained, shelling out £1 for the pack, unaware of the horrors that awaited her.
She continued: "I know it's really bad, this is probably karma for having crisps for breakfast.
"I was sat there, eating away and looking on TikTok, and then I picked up another crisp and just happened to look at it. I thought 'What on Earth is that?'
"I started throwing up, it made my physically sick. I came back to it after to see what it was and took a picture and put it on my social media to see if anybody could tell me what it was.
"People were saying the same thing - that it looked like a spider. I rang Walkers and they asked for the barcode number.
"I was hoping for an apology but the person I spoke to didn't seem that concerned about it. I haven't heard anything back yet.
"I keep looking at the crisp and gagging. I don't know if it's mind over matter but I've been sick three times already and I've got a belly ache. It's definitely put me off eating crisps for life."
Walkers has since responded to the claim, saying an investigation has been launched.
A spokesperson for the snack company said: "We’re sorry to hear that Sabrina has found something unexpected in her pack.
"We take all complaints very seriously and the safety and quality of our products are our top priorities.
"We have robust quality control procedures at all of our manufacturing sites to ensure our products meet the highest standards.
"We remain in contact with Sabrina so that we can further investigate this issue."
