A pregnant woman got a huge shock when she discovered a very unique topping in her Subway sandwich. See for yourself below:
Taking advantage of the wonders of modern life to get a personalised sandwich sent to her partner's house, all seemed to be going well for Nerice until she opened up her meal and saw the knife.
With a sharp, serrated blade and distinctive yellow handle there was no mistaking it for anything but one of Subway's knives, though how it got into the sandwich with nobody noticing is a mystery.
As high pressure as it is at Subway, there is a bit of a difference between accidentally sticking tomatoes into someone's sandwich and leaving a very sharp, very dangerous knife wedged between the bread.
According to the Great Yarmouth Mercury, Nerice's partner called their local Subway to tell them about the misplaced knife, and they were later told they'd hear back from the sandwich chain in a few days.
She said: "I understand everyone has an off day, but you have to be incredibly careful when you work in an environment like that.
"I was with my partner and we got hungry. I am currently pregnant and always getting cravings so my partner went on his phone and ordered a Subway.
"I just opened it up and was like 'hang on, what?'. We both sat there in shock. My partner called Subway in Gorleston High Street and asked 'have you lost one of your yellow knives'. And he was like 'Wait. Are you being serious, like actually?'"
Nerice also said she was 'glad' that if anyone was going to find a knife in their sandwich it was her, as it would not be nice to 'imagine if a young child or a teenager had found it'.
Subway told the LADbible that the franchisee operating the Subway on Gorleston High Street had tried to make contact with Nerice four times since being made aware of the knife left in the sandwich.
They said in a statement: "The health and safety of all guests is of paramount importance to us, and all Franchise Owners are expected to maintain high food safety standards and always serve products to guests’ satisfaction.
"Since the incident was brought to our attention, we have investigated this thoroughly and the team apologised to the customer immediately once informed."
"Since then, the franchisee has reached out to the customer again to resolve the issue."
They said they would continue trying to get in contact to resolve the situation.
It seems as though they were successful after 10 days, as Nerice told LADbible that Subway 'have now apologised', so fingers crossed she doesn't find any more knifes in her sandwiches from now on.
