A mum says she doesn't trust packaged food after finding two beetles in her Sainsbury’s sandwich.

Natalie Mudge, 33, found two insects so large they could be seen through the plastic of the BLT sandwich.

She purchased the meal deal item from a Sainsbury's petrol station in Wantage, Oxon.

Mudge, a former NHS worker, said: "I feel like I can't eat the same way I could before, I don't trust packaged food the same way I used to.

"Eating just hasn't been the same for me since."

Mudge added: "I didn't notice anything when I bought it - to be honest, I was a little hungover.

"My friend opened up our BLTs first and suddenly went 'what the hell is this'.

"I took a look and it was quite a shock. I took them back to Sainsburys and they said they would send it off to be tested."

She said she was given £200 in Sainsbury's vouchers as an apology.

A Sainsbury’s spokesperson said: “We are looking into this customer’s experience.

"Cases like this are extremely rare because we have processes in place to prevent them from happening.”
