Iceland apologise after clump of hair found in minced beef

A supermarket has apologised after a seven-year-old girl found a clump of hair in a home-cooked lasagne made with a packet of beef mince.

Trudy Stock, of Gosport, Hampshire, said her daughter, Shani, was in tears when she came across the object in her food and had suffered nightmares since.

The 29-year-old said the hair, believed to be part of the cow's hide, had come from a £3 packet of frozen mince bought at Iceland's Gosport store.

Ms Stock said Iceland had investigated and given her £30 in vouchers as an apology.

"It's completely traumatised her now. She was in buckets of tears. She was enjoying it until she found that and burst out crying."

In a statement Iceland said; "Iceland has apologised to the customer and offered a gesture of goodwill and we will carry out an investigation with our supplier to determine how it happened."
