This shopper did not expect to find something nasty in her chicken.

When Morgan Kahuroa Adams bought roast chicken at he local Coles supermarket, the last thing she expected to find was something crawling on it. As soon as the mother-of-one opened the packaging to her nice-smelling chicken, she found a white worm sliding across the chicken’s skin. Ms Adams recorded the video which she then posted to Coles’ Facebook page. “Just picked up a hot chicken for lunch, and it’s got things crawling on it. Thanks Coles,” said Ms Adams in her post.

She called the store to tell them about the chicken and they asked her to bring it back in so they could inspect it.
They also offered her a new chicken as a refund, but Ms Adams refused so they gave her a refund of $8.

Some of those who saw her post, said they would think twice about buying chicken from Coles again.
“Safe to say I wont be eating roast chickens from coles again!”, said Madeline King on Facebook.
“Oh my god, that’s disgusting, so glad you saw that straightaway,” Shelly Morrison commented.

  1. Many months ago I brought a dinner from Coles ,indian chicken and rice, when i took it out of the microwave was just stirring through with my fork when a foreign thing came to the top. It was a beetle, had eyes and feelers nearly through up was so fortunate I didnt put any in my mouth. I took photos of it uploaded and sent to Coles customer care. I had to send a copy of the bar code on packet so they could chase it back, to where it was processed. I received a letter a week later saying it was actually a pod that was left in the cooking, suggested I take it back and get a refund. I immediately told them I was not an idiot had sent the photo to numerous people besides the staff where I worked who saw it physically they were also annoyed. Suggested I should put on facebook and let Australia make up its own mind.Have never been back to Coles since then, and won’t buy made up dinners again, gone back to making my own like we did years ago, I make time at least I know where and what is in my food.

  2. Years ago I bought a small slab of pork speck from Coles Deli. When I cut it in half at home, a heap of maggots come spewing out of it. Made my stomach turn, I can tell you……Took it back and got a refund. While I still shop at Coles sometimes, I dont buy anything from the Deli……

  3. If you have the time, it is better and more economical to buy a fresh chicken from a butcher (not supermarkets) and cook it yourself at home. You know you are hygienic in your own kitchen.

  4. The roast chickens are also covered with an unidentified substance to make them brown in the overns. People with allergies need to know this. Nowhere are we told what ingredients go into the substance so it can be very dangerous. My daughter, a cealiac, worked in a deli so she found out that one of the ingredients is gluten – the rest are a mystery. I never buy them now. Surely this “goo” is an ingredient and should be listed on the packet so people with food issues are informed.

  5. I love rotisseried chook, but don’t have one in my old oven.
    So I buy one from ‘Woolies’, now & again, & have NEVER had a problem, of any description, with one of theirs’.
