The farm manager told the Daily Mirror that she had no idea who had dumped the bags there. Anyone with information about the bags is asked to contact Surrey Police.

"It turned out, I guess, I don't use it enough to so they thought there was some fraud going on," Mr Obama said.

The president's meal was still paid for without any emergency action, thanks to the First Lady.

"Fortunately, Michelle had (her card)," Mr Obama explained.
