Yorkshire vegetarian couple disgusted after eating chicken on Morrisons vegetable pizza

A Yorkshire couple who are vegetarian were left disgusted - after eating chicken allegedly put on a 'vegetable supreme' supermarket pizza.

Wednesday, 28th October 2020, 4:45 pm

Scott Sykes, 46, said he bought the pizza from the Bramley Morrisons store on October 16.

Scott told the Yorkshire Evening Post that he tucked into the pizza with his partner Joanne.

However, after getting to the final slices of the pizza, Scott said Joanne spotted the pieces of chicken on the top of the pizza.

The 'Vegetable Supreme' pizza containing chicken

Scott said he is vegetarian not only for ethical reasons but also medical reasons.

He said he was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis more than 20 years ago.

Since cutting out meat from his diet, Scott said his health has improved dramatically.

He now believes he unwittingly ate pieces of chicken on the pizza and has been left furious with the lack of response from Morrisons customer service.

The pizza

Scott told the Yorkshire Evening Post: "It was my partner Joanne that spotted it.

"I purchased a vegetable pizza from Bramley Morrison’s only for it to have chicken pieces on.

"My partner and I are both vegetarian.

"I reported this to Morrisons customer care and as of yet, ten days later, I still have not had a response.

"I think the customer care is appalling not to even respond to me."

After being approached by the YEP, Morrisons apologised for the error and to Mr Sykes.

They said they were "disappointed" the mistake happened and are currently investigating with the store to ensure it is not repeated.

A Morrisons spokeswoman said: "We have apologised to Mr Sykes.

"We are really disappointed this mistake has happened.

"We take all complaints very seriously and are currently undertaking investigations with the store to ensure that this is not repeated."
