Morrisons Shopper Finds Note In Cat Food Claiming To Be From Mistreated Prisoners

Morrisons Shopper Finds Note In Cat Food Claiming To Be From Mistreated Prisoners

A Morrisons shopper has been left shocked and surprised after discovering what appeared to be a horrifying note from some prisoners claiming to be mistreated, inside a box of cat food.

It turned out that the note was a hoax, according to the supermarket chain, but you'd still be pretty unnerved to find something that chilling in your box of pet food.

Hey, it could be worse, just the other day we reported that Morrisons was selling bags of 'wet eggs' for a quid in the meal deal aisle. That's arguably more chilling and - crucially - real.

Anyway, the letter - which was written in Dutch - was found by 28-year-old Stephanie Cropper, who had just got back into her house with the shopping, including the food for her eight-year-old cat Missy, when the uncovered the note inside a box of cat pâté.

The note reads: "Help us #prisonlifematters sbs or rtl boulevard need to know that we have corona in prison we are being mistreated and abused."

SBS and RTL Boulevard are both TV channels based in The Netherlands.

The product that the note was found in is marked as having been made in The Netherlands, which lent a lot of credibility to the note when Stephanie found it.

She told The Sun: "I panicked when I saw the note and translated it straight away.

"I didn't think it was a joke. I thought something serious was going on.

The nail technician from Thornton-Cleveleys in Lancashire then went back down to her local Morrisons store in order to show them the note, but was told that a manager would call her to keep her up to date on what was being done, or what they'd learned about it.

Mercifully, the store have now said that after investigation they've found the note to be a hoax. The cat food was not made or packaged by coronavirus-stricken prisoners who are being mistreated by the authorities.

A spokesperson for the supermarket chain explained: "Our supplier has already identified this is a hoax incident.

"An individual has already owned up to creating hoax messages.

"We can be clear that none of our own-brand cat food is made in prison."

Well, that's good to know at least.

Now, get to work on removing the bags of eggs floating in nondescript liquid from the meal deal shelves.
