A mum-of-one has received an apology from Sainsbury's after finding a razor blade in a chicken kiev she served to her young daughter.
Sophie Perks bought the twin-pack of fresh garlic and parsley kievs from her local supermarket as a quick dinner for her one-year-old daughter Maddison-Faithe.
But as the 22-year-old cut the snack up on the tot’s high chair plate she was stunned when her knife hit a sharp slither of metal.
When she examined the food she was shocked when she discovered a jagged shard of metal measuring around one inch long.
The mum-of-one was enraged when she returned to the branch in Church Gresley, Derbyshire, to find they could offer no explanation for how the blade got into the dish.
Instead, Sophie was offered another pack of £2.50 kievs as an apology for the incident which happened on October 5.
The data manager at a cancer research firm is calling for an urgent investigation into the source of the blade - to make sure no one else suffers the same fate.
Sophie, of Swadlincote, Derbyshire, said: 'I popped in to the store and grabbed a two pack of kievs, the fresh ones not frozen, so my daughter could have dinner.
'When we got home I cooked them both and when they were done I cut one up on Maddison's plate and heard a clink when my knife hit something.
'I picked it up to check what had made the noise and the razor blade fell from the bottom.
'I was disgusted, if I hadn't heard the clunk I would have just served it up - I dread to think what could have happened.
'I took it back to the shop and the deputy manager was very apologetic, they gave me some new ones, which I checked in the shop and said the manager would contact me.
'When he did all he could say was that they could only offer their sincere apologies and were looking into the matter.
'I wanted to know how it got in there but they couldn't tell me.
'This needs to be looked into as soon as possible. If it is because of something from the manufacture or the machines then there needs to be a recall.
The supermarket giant is now investigating the claims.
A Sainsbury’s spokeswoman said: 'We have started a thorough investigation and apologised to Miss Perks for the inconvenience caused.
'Incidents like this are extremely rare as we have the highest standards and carry out quality control checks at all stages of production.'
