Mum finds ‘caviar’ inside toddler’s Asda fish fingers

A mum was horrified after discovering eggs inside her toddler’s dinner.

Chelsea Freer, from Middlesbrough, noticed the ‘caviar’ as she prepared the Asda ‘Just Essentials’ fish fingers for her two-year-old son.

The mum said she went to the store to complain and was given a £5 gift voucher for her next Asda shop.

Chelsea said: ‘I won’t be buying Asda’s fish fingers again.

‘Good job I didn’t let my son eat them.

‘I’m glad I saw them otherwise I wouldn’t have even known. I won’t be buying them ever again.’

Others saw Chelsea’s shopping as a bargain, with some calling it ‘cheap caviar’.

Vicky Sole said: ‘Cavier fish fingers should be £75 not 75p.’


Another, named Martin, said: ‘It’s roe. You got you some breaded caviar.’

But in order for it to be classed as caviar, the roe must come from a sturgeon fish, rather than a pollock which is found in fish fingers.

Others agreed with Chelsea, saying they would gladly call emergency services if they found their fish fingers full of eggs.

Lauren Skyrme said: ‘I would ring the police.’

Meg Woodhouse added: ‘Rotten that, they’re the ones I’ve been buying for my little girl as well.’

An Asda spokesperson said: ‘Unfortunately the nature of using fish means that there is always a small risk of roe making its way into the final product.

‘We have processes in place throughout the supply chain from catch to processing, including avoiding times of the year when this is more likely to occur and we have received no similar complaints about this issue.

‘We understand that Ms Freer has taken the product back into store and has received a full refund as well as a gesture of goodwill, and we apologise again for any inconvenience this may have caused her.’
