A dad says his daughter almost choked to death in front of him when a stray piece of cardboard got into her fish fingers.
Robert Young, from Pontefract, had just served up Ellie-Jay’s teatime favourite from his local Iceland supermarket with chips and beans when the six-year-old began to choke.
Robert said: “It was horrible. I’ve never experienced anything in my life like it.”
Grimsby-based suppliers Youngs have admitted the stray piece came from the production process and have apologised and vowed to tighten up safety procedures. A spokesman added: “We wrote to apologise to the consumer offering a Postal Order reimbursement and gesture of our concern and goodwill. We would like to reassure him that our factories operate to the highest standards.”
