Check your food thoroughly before eating it.
That’s the advice from a female resident of Reduit Orchard, Gros Islet who discovered a live slug in her bread and chicken sandwich, according to a DBS news report.
The woman, who did not identify herself, said she bought the sandwich from a booth in the Castries market on Monday and left to go home.
On her way home in a bus, she told DBS that she ate “little piece” of the sandwich and ate “half” shortly after she arrived at her home.
The woman went on to say that she “left the other piece” to make a cup of coffee – to wash down the rest of the sandwich.
On her way back to get the rest of the sandwich she said she saw a slug crawling out of the food.
The woman said she was “very upset” and as a result hadn’t eaten anything since Monday.
She eventually confronted the vendor who sold her the sandwich and disclosed what happened.
The vendor, she said, sympathised with her, and noted that it was not done on purpose.
She added that the vendor said she felt sorry and apologised.
And her next action? She told DBS that she will not take any action againt the vendor but wants people to be very careful with how they cook and prepare food for the public.
She is also warning everyone to check their food properly before eating.
