A Facebook user posted photos of a staple bullet that she allegedly found inside a packet of prawn rolls that she had bought from Sheng Siong Supermarket.
She had bought the frozen prawn rolls from the supermarket and brought them home to cook for kids to eat, and when she cut the prawn rolls into smaller pieces after frying them, she was horrified to find staple bullets inside the filling.
In her Facebook post, the netizen said that she had bought 2 packets of Le Bao Handmade Prawn Rolls from a Sheng Siong Supermarket outlet.
She opened up on of the packets to fry it and thereafter, cut the rolls into smaller pieces, and that was when she found what appeared to be a small metal piece of staple bullet inside.
She said that she has since sent an email to the Singapore Food Agency to report the incident.
Sheng Siong Supermarket replied in the comments of her Facebook post, apologising for the incident: “Dear Customer, We sincerely apologise for the unpleasant experience. Please pm us your contact number, purchase receipt or outlet and date of purchase so our customer service team could follow up with you regarding your feedback. We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.”
