Ah hair – Longford woman offered 65p refund after she bites into cereal bar full of hair

As if biting into a cereal bar full of hair wasn’t bad enough, an Irish woman was offered just a 65p refund afterwards to rub salt into the wounds.

Marie Ward, who works in a jewellers in Coventry, was horrified to discover her snack was full of hair.

“I bought the cereal bars the week before after my mum recommended them to me and one night I was tucking in to one while in bed,” she told The Coventry Telegraph.

“I took a bite and found a hair in my mouth, but I thought maybe it was just one of my own. I had another bite and found my mouth was full of fur, so I ran in to the bathroom to spit it out.”

“I had a proper look and the bar was just full of hair. Obviously when it was made somehow the hair got in to it. I was sick all night and then again in the morning,” she added.

When Marie went back to her local Sainsbury’s to complain, they only offered a refund for the bar which cost 65p. She then spoke to the manager, who took a picture of the bar, but was told all they could do was to send the bar for analysis.
