A Harpenden dad has spoken out after a finding a ‘harmful’ piece of string in a packet of peanuts his son was eating from Marks & Spencer.
Antonio Di Giacinto raised the alarm after claiming the ‘10-inch’ string could have choked his 11-year-old son.
He told the Herts Ad: “I was told it could be string that has come off the sack they use to contain the nuts – staff did not seem interested.
“It’s harmful, it’s about 10 inches long and it’s covered in the melted salt and sugar coating.
“My son just spat it out, but he could have choked or something. I spoke to customer services – if you look at the picture, it’s quite serious.”
