The Daily Voice reported on a Cape Town woman (from Manenberg) who is claiming that she found a mouse in her Woolworths pie.
According to Carmelita Pienaar, she bought three pies from Woolworths in Adderly Street, but her steak and kidney pie didn’t quite taste right (it made her “naar”). When she opened it up, she discovered a tiny mouse inside. She believes the pie may have poisoned her.
She tells the Daily Voice: “I’ve been feeling itchy and have rashes on my body.”
“I didn’t take the pie out of the packet, but I knew something was wrong because it didn’t feel or taste right. And when I broke the pie open I saw the mouse,” she says.
Carmelita says that mense at the café were also in shock and took pictures which they posted on social media.
The Daily Voice contacted Woolworths for comment and in a statement, the company replied: “The product has been received from the customer and is currently undergoing investigation.”
Apparently the Woolworths manager gave her R350 and told her to see a doctor.
I’m not quite sure what to believe here. Either way, this can’t be good for Woolworths’ image. An investigation is underway. Soon we’ll know the full truth and whether or not there really was a mouse in her Woolworths pie.
