A Hveragerði woman got quite the mouthful today when she found a used bandage in a loaf of store-bought banana bread, Vísir reports.
Sigurbjörg Pálsdóttir bit into this most unpleasant surprise while eating a piece of Ekta Brauð banana bread, which she bought at a Bónus grocery store in Árbær. “I had it in my mouth, it was the same colour as the bread,” says Sigurbjörg. “It wasn’t a particularly pleasant experience.”
Sigurbjörg had been trying to reach the company to no avail when she decided to contact Vísir. “I just want to bring it to their attention,” she says. “I work in the food service industry myself and I would want to know of such things.”
Ekta was unaware of this when The Grapevine contacted them today. “We don’t know anything about it,” says Ekta Brauð employee Guðný Leifsdóttir on behalf of the company. “I think it’s very strange that they could not reach us because our phone number is right here on our Facebook. I found the bandage story kind of stupid.” She would not elaborate on this comment.
