A mum was furious after claiming she found maggots in a jar of Tesco Bolognese sauce.

Rosina James bought two jars of the sauce from a Tesco Extra in Poole, Dorset in November.

She opened one on Monday while preparing dinner for her family.

But Rosina from Wareham noticed something was wrong and snapped a picture of the food.

She said, “I was pouring a small amount into a pot and I saw something and I was like, ‘What are these?’

“I had recently seen pictures of someone seeing maggots in their baked beans and thought it looked a bit similar, I wasn’t sure. I left the sauce aside and put it on Facebook to ask people what it is.

“I asked Tesco on social media but they didn’t get back to me. I’ve obviously decided not to eat it.’

One of Rosina’s friends suggested removing the strange item to “dry it off” before further inspection.

She then took a series of photos – and claimed they showed the tomato-stained objects were several deceased maggots.

Rosina continued: “You’re dead in the jar but it really puts you off eating doesn’t it? I’ve asked Tesco to recall it, I don’t want any compensation, I’m asking that they make sure no one’s kids eat this.

“We may already be eating this stuff, but once we know it’s there, we stop feeding it.”

After Ms James posted her ordeal on Facebook, another woman reported that she was having the same problem.

A Tesco spokesman responded to the maggots’ claims: “We are very sorry to hear this and have contacted the customer to apologize.

“The health and safety of our customers is our top priority and we are investigating this with our supplier as a matter of priority.

“We have strict hygiene standards for all of our manufacturers and will be in touch with the customer once our investigation is complete.”

Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council are also investigating the complaint.
