Asda Shopper Finds 'Disgusting Slime' In Juice Carton
A shopper got the shock of their life when they allegedly found a chunk of 'disgusting slime' floating in their carton of juice.
Laurence Goodbody was about to treat himself to a helping of his friend's grapefruit juice, which had been bough at Asda, when he noticed a rattling coming from the inside.
Pouring out the contents of the 65p carton, the 48-year-old said he was horrified when a greeny-grey-yellowish gloop fell out - despite the expiry date being July 2020.
Sharing a video of the pretty grim discovery on Twitter, Laurence wrote: "What on earth is this in my friend's carton of Asda's pink grapefruit?
"She only bought it three days ago and has been drinking from it the past two days. The sell by date is not till July this year as well.
"If your carton rattles beware and don't drink from it."
According to Laurence, the carton had been bought at ASDA Queslett store in Great Barr, Birmingham.
Describing the goo, he said it looked like a "nuclear waste mutated oyster."

Adding: "I posted the video to try to get Asda's immediate attention without them just refunding my friend with another carton which would have been a 'thank you very much for bringing it to our attention and sweeping it under the carpet' exercise."
Responding to the claim, a spokesperson told the Sun Online that this has never been reported before.
They said: "We always want to delight our customers and would like to apologise again to Mr Goodbody for his carton of juice being more frightful than delightful.
"We can reassure customers that we have had no other complaints of this nature and so long as a carton is sealed, then mould cannot grow in it.
"However, if a carton is punctured or damaged - which lets in air - then mould can form if it is left for a long period of time.
"We'd welcome Mr Goodbody to bring the carton back to store so we can fully investigate this for him."
There is some good news, though. Motorists who fill up at the forecourts of any Asda, Morrisons, or Sainsbury's petrol stations will be able to take advantage of the cheapest diesel prices in two years.
On top of that, the cost of unleaded petrol is at the lowest it has been since April 2019.
That's because Asda decided that from today it was going to slash 2p per litre off both diesel and petrol at every single one of their 322 petrol stations in the UK.
