Vegetarian Cried All Night After Finding Chicken In Her Vegetable Curry

Vegetarian Cried All Night After Finding Chicken In Her Vegetable Curry

A vegetarian says she'll never eat another curry after a takeaway gave her a chicken dish rather than the meat-free version she'd ordered.

Animal rights activist Tania Baxter cried all night after she ordered a vegetable curry from Melton Spice in her home town of Melton Constable, Norfolk, but immediately bit down into a big bit of chicken.

The 45-year-old mum stopped eating meat 10 years ago, but still enjoyed getting a takeaway until her experience on Friday evening (8 November).

She claims that her friend - who collected the meal from the takeaway - was reassured that the vegetable curry Tania ordered for herself didn't contain any meat.

However, she explained: "As soon as I took a mouthful, I knew instantly the texture in my teeth was meat, so I spat it out straight away.

"Then I looked through the rest of the curry and saw these same pieces of chicken."

Angered by this, she called up the takeaway to complain, but the response she got from them didn't exactly make things better.

She continued: "There was no remorse, no apology. He said to me three times 'come back and I'll make you another curry', but that wasn't the point.

"The whole experience was completely devastating and I was in tears all night.

"My 12-year-old daughter is not a vegetarian but she was so upset, she didn't eat her own dinner."

Tania's eldest daughter even went down to the restaurant to ask for a proper explanation, but they still weren't forthcoming.

Tania added: "They just weren't grasping how upsetting this was for someone who is against slaughter and eating animals.

"They just didn't seem to care.

"What if someone had a serious allergy and they were given the wrong dish? Someone could die because of this.

"This isn't something I will get over, to go through that and experience that kind of attitude.

"I will never eat a curry again - I can guarantee that."

Following her upsetting experience, Tania is now set on warning others. She's got a point, too.

For their part, Rakim Imam, who works at Melton Spice, said: "Someone called to say they had chicken in their vegetarian curry and we have refunded them.

"If there is a mistake, we have to see the curry first and then we can investigate what has happened.

"The lady said it had chicken in it, but refused to bring it back to us."
