Richard Noon, a CRM manager at the University of Huddersfield, was feeling a bit peckish so he bought a packet of Burts Chips from his local pub. He was disconcerted when he opened the packet and found a large weird object inside. It was so large that there wasn’t much room for anything else.
He gingerly took the object out and wondered how it could have evaded the scruteneers at the factory. It was heavy so surely it would have shown during quality control weighing? He thought it may be a clump of something that had fallen in to the mix during processing.
He contacted Burts Chips and they will be sending him an envelope and requested that he sends the offending object through to them so that they can test it and see just what it is. At the moment they feel that it is probably a lump of chips that got stuck together during frying.
The good news is that the company has seen this as an opportunity to revamp their quality control. They will be increasing the number of checks done so that this will not occur again.
Mashable will be keeping an eye on this investigation and will update readers on the outcome.
