Studio manager gets the shock of their life after finding a SLUG in their lateral flow test

A studio manager got the shock of their life when they found a SLUG in their lateral flow test. Sophs Forte, 28, was horrified to find a SLUG in their lateral flow test. Sophs, from Norwich, Norfolk, told how they had picked up a box of Flowflex lateral flow tests, which are available from the NHS, from their local pharmacy. But when the Creative Studio Manager opened one up on December 16 – they got the shock of their life. To Sophs’ horror, inside one of the plastic vials containing the test solution was what appeared to be a SLUG. Their reaction was to yell “What the f*** - there’s a slug!” before launching the vial – and the entire box of tests – into the bin. Sophs said: “I pulled one of the vials and immediately spotted something black – and I quickly realised what it was. “I shouted to my family but nobody believed it until I showed them. “It was just squashed in there – luckily it wasn’t moving.” They said after the initial shock, the funny side kicked in. Sophs said: “As disgusting as it is, I found it quite funny. “I have no idea how a slug would even have ended up in there – at what point in the production line would that happen?! “Well... the slug was declining to answer. “I’m not blaming the NHS, they’ve worked hard enough and have a lot on. "I don't know what happened or how. "But keep an eye on your Covid tests!" FLOWFLEX HAS BEEN APPROACHED FOR COMMENT. ENDS
